The guild house was built in the 14th century AD as a representative building of the Zunft zur Zimmerleuten on the Limmat river's right hand (downstream) shore in the today's Rathaus quarter, in the immediate neighborhood of the Grossmünster church, the Rathaus Zürich and the Haus zum Rüden, being then the most important buildings in Zürich. The guild house was first mentioned in a document dated 1416 AD.
In 2007 the building was partially destroyed by a fire, renovated and re-opened in 2010.
The building is listed in the Swiss inventory of cultural property of national and regional significance as a Class A object.
