Hotel Schweizerhof, Vulpera

Starting situation and idea

Built at the end of the 19th century, the spa hotel was designed by renowned architect Karl Gottlieb Koller and was a palatial structure in Lower Engadin. Due to economic conditions and the scope of renovation needed, hotel operation was closed in spring 2016.


The aim was to conserve the historic building and restore its original character as far as possible. The load-bearing structure was left as-is. New suites with an entrance area/wardrobe, master bedroom, living and dining areas, and kitchen were integrated into the existing structure. The works will give rise to roughly 90 suites with one to five rooms each.


In order to make the enterprise sustainable for the future, the hotel is to be operated in the serviced suites. A reception area, restaurant, meeting rooms and lounges as well as a wellness area are fully integrated into the building to make up the infrastructure for the serviced suites.
