Statement for Innovation & Sustainability
The HoHo Wien is not only a high-rise building with 75% wood, it also makes a clear statement for innovation and sustainability. The timber construction saves around 2,800 tonnes of CO equivalents compared to a reinforced concrete version. This corresponds to approx. 20 million car kilometres or 1,300 years of a daily car journey of 40 kilometres. The highest wooden high-rise in the world grew back in just one hour and 17 minutes in the forests of Austria, which is exemplary when you consider that the wooden atmosphere has a proven* positive effect on quality of life, personal experience and health. All areas of use - restaurant, health, beauty, wellness, business, hotel and apartment - have their common denominator in the pure spatial experience of wood.
Manuela Halm, CEO and responsible for development at DORMERO, sees another milestone in the growth of the hotel chain reached: "DORMERO has stood for something different for years - with the world's first wooden high-rise hotel, we are once again taking on a pioneering role here."
