FANUC Hungary Headquarters
2045 Törökbálint, Torbágyi u. 7.

Candidate: bim.GROUP Ltd
Investor: FANUC Hungary Ltd
Designer: bim.GROUP Ltd
Constructor: KÉSZ Építő Plc

Previously, FANUC Hungary Ltd operated in a premises leased in the commercial zone of Törökbálint. As the company was growing, the size of the premises used at the time was no longer sufficient. The company did not find any suitable building in the neighbourhood which would have been available for rent. The growth of the company made the establishment of an own headquarters necessary.
The team of FANUC Hungary Ltd wanted a building where they can operate successfully in the long term and which represents symbolically, with its appearance, the position that the company is now occupying and that it intends to occupy in its own sector.
At the beginning of the planning process, potential future expansions, the characteristics of the plot of land, and the possible orientations needed to be taken into account in the formation of the volumes of the buildings. The goal was to separate the different functions both in the formation of the architectural solution and the use of materials. The colours appearing in the brand sign of the international parent company – light grey, red, and green – appear on the facade in a manner strictly linked to the functions.
The property has been occupied by the company and the entire premises is used solely by FANUC Hungary Ltd.

Candidate: FINTA ÉS TÁRSAI ÉPÍTÉSZ STÚDIÓ LTD
Investor: HB REAVIS FUND
Designer: MAKE ARCHITECTS / FINTA ÉS TÁRSAI ÉPÍTÉSZ STÚDIÓ LTD
Constructor: HB REAVIS Construction

The project was realised by reinterpreting a former industrial zone located at the edge of the central business quarter of Budapest, on the site of the former bus station.
The designers firmly believe that the project realised at the intersection of Váci Road and Róbert Károly Boulevard must be much more than an attractive development: it must become the real focus of vibrant city life, where the urban spaces (squares and parks) inspire the life of the community and community life fills the spaces with life regardless of the time of the day.
The development concept establishes new quality links between the intermodal hub and its environment, the offices along Dunavirág Street and the neighbouring residential quarters. The principal organising element of the project, “Agora” – an urban-scale public square achieving the delicate proportion of intense green surfaces and usable urban spaces – is at the focus of the new pedestrian pathways.
The project is, therefore, both a business investment – a construction project on a site of more than 200,000 m2 with “A” category office spaces, commercial and service functions in the final phase – and an act of urban architecture: the new sub-centre of the district, a new location of urban existence.
Upon handover the lease level of the first phase was 75%, one year later it was 95%.

The residential complex of Allure Residence was built right next to historic buildings, on the former site of the cattle market in District 9 of Budapest.
The residential building comprising 3 ground floor plus 10-storey blocks consisting of a total of 531 flats, 10 commercial premises and 621 parking spaces on 2 underground car park levels is a megastructure, where significant priority is given to spatial proportions and functional order. The division of the huge building mass into smaller units, solar exposure, ventilation, the integration of green spaces, the development of common areas, the layout of stairways and the corresponding flat types are of particular importance, because the main goal is to create a harmonic human-scale environment, which is the basis of our existence as a community.
This way of thinking defined the appearance of the Allure Residence. Functions as restaurants, and shops serving the neighbourhood line up on the ground floor of the building in the “pedestal” of the statue-like composition, on a net floor area of approximately 3,000 m2. This level opens to the street with its uniform glass facade, communicating with the bustling city.
When the construction was finished, the level of sales was 90% and the level of lease was 40%; one year later these figures were respectively 97% and 80%.

Constructor: STRABAG Magyarország

A long-standing need was met within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project aiming at the complex development and renewal of City Park, when the National Museum Conservation and Storage Centre (OMRRK) of 37 thousand square meters consisting of five buildings was established in the neighbourhood of City Park, on the site of the former Israelite Hospital in Szabolcs Street as a brown field investment, by partially utilising the valuable building complex.
In the artwork storage and conservation centre designed for significant Hungarian public collections, the previously fragmented institutional units – which were often placed in an ad hoc manner – were unified in a modern, world-class complex, together with the Central European Art History Research Institute.
The development had a triple objective. Firstly, this modern, world-class building combines the artwork storage and conservation workshops of the most significant Hungarian public collections, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian National Gallery, and the Museum of Ethnography. Secondly, the OMRRK accommodates the Central European Art History Research Institute (KEMKI) and thirdly, the institution functions as a visitor centre. A park of 13,000 square meters was also build around the institution complex, which can be used by the public during opening hours.

Candidate: CORDIA
Investor: CORDIA GLOBAL Property Development Private Umbrella Fund - Cordia Global 11. Property Development Sub-Fund
Designer: LAB5 Architects
Constructor: Pedrano Homes Építőipari Ltd

Grand Corvin, constructed in two phases, is a residential building closing the development of the Corvin Promenade. In the 1st phase of the development – which also has a green courtyard garden of 942 m2 – there are 194 flats (99% of which have already been sold) from studios of 30m2 to large apartments of 132 m2. The ground-floor flats have garden access and each flat on the upper floors has a balcony.
The mass of Grand Corvin was scaled to be in line with the original urban tissue by being divided into several different characters with the diversity of the external envelopes and the colours. The building reacts to the concept of the office buildings closing the Promenade and the spaces surrounding them: thus, the Promenade does not simply come to an end, but almost slithers in between the buildings with subtle space additions – this concept is also served by the entrances moved further back. The designers created a type of construction which allows a lot of space and sunlight to the side streets as well, but the view of the Promenade and as much green surface as possible was also an important criterion. The special metal sheet covering improving the light conditions of courtyards had not been used previously in case of a residential complex of this scale.

Constructor: HUNÉP Universal Építőipari Plc Péter Szabó

Tetris House is a 270-apartment building with a ground floor and eight stories, fitting in the residential area. Each of the flats – varying from one-room to four-room apartments – has a terrace, a balcony, or garden access. The comfort of the residents is served by a two-level underground car park, a landscaped garden, a playground, and shops from the direction of Fehérvári Street.
In addition to utilising the maximum building height, one of the corners of the building stands out emphatically, reacting to the neighbouring ten-storey houses. On the back side, its height is adjusted to the lower five and six-storey buildings, which creates exciting dynamics in the mass.
The location of the wings and courtyards, as well as the underground car park was determined by the protection of larger trees.
The different wings are connected on the ground floor. The main entrance is accessible through a gate and across an open-air courtyard.
The building strives to appear with a more powerful image and an independent identity in a not very motivating environment, with bits of colour departing from the loggias.
By the completion 94% and a year later each of the flats had been sold by the investor.

The hotel, which fills a gap on the Buda side, found its place in the Budapest hotel market soon after its opening in July 2019, which is evidenced by the 78% reservation rate in the first year.

Constructor Nimród-Bau Beruházó és Kivitelező Ltd

The modernisation of all public buildings in Gyöngyösi Promenade forms part of the long-term development concept of the Municipality of District 13 of Budapest; the complex renovation of the building of 1,560 m2 and the play yard of 2,875 m2 of the nearly 40-year-old Igazgyöngy Childcare Centre took place within this framework between 2018 and 2019.
The project was realised with an investment of nearly HUF 890 million. During the renovation, the building was demolished up to the structure. The amount of energy necessary for the operation of the building has decreased significantly as a result of the thermal insulation of the building structures. The child activity rooms and the offices have heat recovery ventilation in the spirit of energy consciousness. The internal lighting was reconstructed with LED light sources. The specific energy consumption of the building per square meter after the renovation approaches the energy demand of passive houses.
As a result of the modernisation of the property, the childcare centre provides the employees and the children with comfortable conditions fit for the 21st century for working and spending time in the institution.

During the designing process the goal was to create an institution which represents a forward-thinking trend in its functions. One example of the progressive spirit is the auditorium equipped with stage technology. From the auditorium, having a capacity of 500 persons, three smaller halls can be created by rotating the two circular areas with ascending seating benches. A particular feature of the building in terms of both functionality and architecture is the 13-meter high, nearly 88-tonne so-called stock egg (an egg-shaped structure simulating an actual stock market) suspended in the auditorium. The lecture hall allows the modelling of economic life. The objective of the campus development is – among other things – to create for the city as well a centre with a community forming capacity. This purpose is served by a restaurant, an exhibition facility, and a multifunctional space which accommodates concerts and theatre performances. All this will be surrounded by a wooded community park.

Péter Rozgonyi Operator: Nemezti Táncszínház Non-Profit Ltd Péter Ertl Millenáris Non-Profit Pbc, Virág Cecília Dankó The National Dance Theatre has served the Hungarian culture since 2001 as the most importance centre of the domestic dance scene. Its key task is to represent and manage the domestic dance art. It presents nearly 300 productions every year, and as a hosting theatre it works with some forty Hungarian professional dance companies. Through folk dance to classical ballet, from ballroom dance through contemporary dance to interactive child productions, it intends to maintain the interest of the audience regularly going to the Dance Theatre with a diversity of genres. The annual number of spectators of their domestic productions is nearly 100 thousand persons. In 2001, the Hungarian dance profession received the former church located in the Carmelite Monastery as their venue, which had been operating as the first bricks-and-mortar theatre of Budapest since 1787. In 2014, it was decided that the National Dance Theatre would receive a new venue in Building “E” of Millenáris Park, which had originally operated as the transformer factory of Ganz Works. Both the location and the spatial structure and features of the industrial building were ideal for accommodating the National Dance Theatre, which brings together the Hungarian dance profession.

Data of the operator: Móricz Zsigmond Színház Non-Profit Ltd Róbert Kirják

The objective of the project was to further enhance the image of Nyíregyháza as an attractive city: to create an inviting inner city with a uniform image, as well as developed recreational and commercial functions. Rózsakert Open-Air Theatre plays a key role in this process by reinforcing the city’s walkable and vibrant inner-city character.
The project was justified because the Open-Air Theatre was in quite a poor technical condition, failing to meet either the requirements of the present age or the local needs. The Open-Air Theatre situated at a frequented location in Nyíregyháza is a distinctive spatial organising element of the inner city. The city’s institution of high importance perfectly fits the forms and architectural expression of the structures, buildings, and spaces in the area.
The building complex of the open-air theatre of 5,000 square meters and its fully renewed immediate environment play a major part in the everyday life of the city. The project also allowed the architectural heritage and the architectural values to be preserved.

Designer: Éva Magyari and Béla Pazár

Constructor: Swietelsky Magyarország Ltd

Operator: Roman Catholic Diocese of Győr

Saint Michael’s Church, the oldest parish church in Sopron from the 13th century, was built next to the cemetery situated outside the medieval city wall. With its dimensions and bold proportions, the church is one of the most significant pieces of architecture with Gothic elements in Hungary. Over the years, it has become the most significant monument of the city, and a defining element and symbol of its image.
The Municipality of Sopron City with County Rights had long dreamt of the renovation of the church: on the one hand, to show the building of significance for the city image in a manner worthy of its value, and on the other hand, to boost the religious tourism of the settlement having long Catholic traditions. The construction took place between 2018 and 2020, and the cost price amounted to approximately HUF 3,000 million. The thorough and comprehensive reconstruction works focused on three main areas: the full renovation of the exterior and interior of the church; the renovation and reconstruction of the adjacent Sacristy, which is also a protected monument, and the establishment of a coffeeshop and an exhibition facility inside it; the renewal of the churchyard and the renovation of the sidewalk section and parking areas in front of the church.
Today, St. Michael’s Church and the surrounding buildings form part of the tourism offer of Sopron and the region as an independent attraction; furthermore, a new centre offering a wide range of experiences was established, which can be the starting point for exploring a whole neighbourhood.

The specific development objectives of the Municipality of Hegyvidék include ensuring high-quality living conditions and services, improving the quality of life of the residents of the district, supporting the formation of a cultivated and well-informed citizenry.
There was previously no specific space within the inner part of the district which would have fulfilled the function of an urban centre. The key elements of the Integrated Urban Development Concept include the development of Böszörményi Sreet and the establishment of the main street of Hegyvidék.
The objective of the property development is to create the missing local centre in connection with the main street. The two basic pillars of this process are creating a community space suitable for multifunctional use and ensuring services and institutions serving the community.
The popular public cultural institution of the Municipality, the Cultural Salon operated in Böszörményi Street until 2018. The inherent characteristics of the existing confined venue proved to be unsuitable for the institution’s varied programmes. The Municipality wished to provide the Cultural Salon with a venue worthy of the institution.
The complex development of Városháza Square and its environment provided an opportunity to implement the above objectives.

National Museum Conservation and Storage Centre

Candidate /Investor: Városliget Plc
Designer: Narmer Építészeti Stúdió Budapest
Constructor: STRABAG Magyarország


A long-standing need was met within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project aiming at the complex development and renewal of City Park, when the National Museum Conservation and Storage Centre (OMRRK) of 37 thousand square meters consisting of five buildings was established in the neighbourhood of City Park, on the site of the former Israelite Hospital in Szabolcs Street as a brown field investment, by partially utilising the valuable building complex.
In the artwork storage and conservation centre designed for significant Hungarian public collections, the previously fragmented institutional units – which were often placed in an ad hoc manner – were unified in a modern, world-class complex, together with the Central European Art History Research Institute.
The development had a triple objective. Firstly, this modern, world-class building combines the artwork storage and conservation workshops of the most significant Hungarian public collections, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian National Gallery, and the Museum of Ethnography. Secondly, the OMRRK accommodates the Central European Art History Research Institute (KEMKI) and thirdly, the institution functions as a visitor centre. A park of 13,000 square meters was also build around the institution complex, which can be used by the public during opening hours.

The Kaposvár Intermodal Transport Centre is a unique development, the first of this type in the country. By arranging the different modes of transport next to each other, transportation in Kaposvár has been made faster, safer, and more comfortable. The parts of the development form a harmonized functional unit, rendering the lives of 32 thousand people more comfortable every single day, while also creating a modern townscape with its neat forms and colours, with Esterházy Bridge – which can also be regarded as the city’s new symbol – being its focal point.
This development goes far beyond the modernisation of transportation; an urban and area renewal concept was brought into existence which created a unique and exemplary product with the construction of new urban collecting roads, road and pedestrian overpasses and the creation of renewed public areas and liveable community spaces. With imposing and innovative technical solutions above the surface and renewed and modernised public utilities below the surface, it creates a lasting, safe, and liveable environment for those living in and those passing through the city.

Operator: AFM Ingatlanfejlesztő Ltd

Pier “B” of Terminal 2B of Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport increased the passenger traffic area of the non-Schengen Terminal “2B” by more than 10,000 square meters: thanks to the 10 new boarding bridges and the architectural solutions of the 220-meter-long pier, a total of 27 different boarding options have become available. During the investment, about 13,600 m3 of concrete was consumed, including the foundation, and 350 tonnes of steel structures were incorporated.
The uniform use of materials on the facades, the white metal sheet surfaces, and the horizontal division of the glazed facades continue the generous concept of the SkyCourt, while the large fair-faced concrete surfaces with a bit more rough, industrial appearance and the dark grey ceramic flooring in the departure hall provide a calming background to the multicoloured flow of the planned transport function.
The completed pier increased the annual passenger traffic capacity of the airport by 5-6 million persons.

The building complex of the Depot was the first newly built tram depot in Budapest after World War II.
Although it has a marked appearance in terms positioning, mass formation, segmentation, and colour choice, the building fits well in the line of tall buildings perpendicular to Fehérvári Street. The length of the main building stretching along Fehérvári Street was disintegrated with the 7.5-meter-wide banding of the metal roof, perpendicular to the longitudinal plane of the tracks. The building complex merges the elements of modern architecture with classic industrial depot elements. The two oldest building complexes were kept from the former HÉV suburban train depot.
The “Budapest Tram and Trolley Bus Vehicle Development, Phase I” project was implemented from EU co-funding. Within the framework of the project, 25 vehicles with a maximum length of 36 meters and 12 vehicles with a maximum length of 56 meters were purchased by the Centre for Budapest Transport, which are maintained in the depot with the most advanced technological equipment in Budapest.
State-of-the art vehicle lifting and other maintenance equipment, as well as overhead contact line work platforms with adjustable width suitable for the maintenance of all vehicle types operating in Budapest have been installed in the hall building.

Property development is an integral part of the project “Health Resort Development in the Town of Balatonfüred”. On the former site of an overground car park, an underground car park was constructed, then on the overground surfaces high-quality green space, as well as service, cultural and information buildings were built for the town.
The implemented development serves both quality tourism and the needs of those living in and using the town by integrally connecting the site originally used as an overground park to the environment of the bath resort. It created a liveable, human-scale site, which establishes a link between the waterfront developments and the blocks of plots built up with mansions.
The heritage of tradition and the renewing image – jointly and in a mutually complementary way – blend in well with the urban environment. With its noble material use and clear architectural expression the development conveys a positive, forward-looking message to the people. It harmonises the spatial requirement of the different functions with the visual balance of the new building masses and functionality with interior architecture and design.
70% of the building parts were sold at the completion of the construction, and one year later the level of both sale and lease reached 100%.

Budapest's modern recreational park, Millenáris Széllkapu (Gate of Winds) opened with the largest three-dimensional vertical garden in Central Europe, a cherry tree grove, a forest-field-lake trio, spectacular design solar panels and 355 new trees. Széllkapu Park, covering an area of 41,000 square meters, significantly contributes to the green areas of the capital.
The most spectacular element of the park is the green wall set on a 350-tonne steel frame, which functions as a passage and a connecting element, as well as a recreational spot and a viewpoint. The vertical garden with its 4,000 square meter vertical green surface is an extension of the park, which covers the whole length of the adjacent shopping centre and leads to the other part of Millenáris Park.
The park is organised into three units: the lush, dense vegetation is like a forest, the wildflower part brings to mind the Hungarian fields, while the 650 square meter lake evokes the world of fresh waters. In the architectural focus of the park three spectacular, individually designed solar panels have been placed: these structures provide shade and are also connected to the park’s energy supply.
Under the park there is a 500-space underground garage, an electric car charging station and a bicycle storage room. The vegetation appears here as well: the fair-faced concrete elements around the entrance are covered with a varied green surface.

Bujtosi City Park is a public park in Nyíregyháza, which has long been popular. Its distinctive feature is that there are five artificial lakes on its area of 27,1 hectares. In 1995, the city government decided to create a public park on the site with attractions such as sports grounds, fishing piers, a shrub maze and barbecue spots in addition to the fishing ponds. These popular services were renewed and supplemented with further elements in the course of the recent reconstruction. The main objective of the renovation realised from EU funds was to create a public park offering numerous modern services and meeting the requirements of the 21st century. All this by keeping, improving, and supplementing the existing functions, and creating a family-friendly, liveable, and sustainable green surface, which can be well utilised by all generations; in the spirit of this latter, the vegetation was also renewed. The renovation was part of the “Development of a Green City on the Territory of Nyíregyháza” project, which was implemented in line with the efforts aiming at the sustainable urban development of Nyíregyháza.

Investor: MOL Plc
Designer: bim.GROUP Ltd
Constructor: Merkbau Plc

The new barrack building of the on-site fire brigade operating on the Tiszaújváros site of MOL Petrochemicals was built with an investment of HUF 2.5 billion. From the modern complex, the approximately 70 firefighters working there provide the residents within and outside the industrial site with fire protection and damage control services as quickly as possible, by using state-of-the-art equipment. FER also provides a wide range of complex fire and accident prevention equipment and services.

The building was constructed as a green field investment in the remote part of an enclosed industrial site, located in a currently non-built-up environment. The form of the two-level building displays the triple unity arising from the function, which is interconnected by the hallway-stairway situated in the central core. The ground-floor gives home to the services-maintenance area in addition to the vehicle and swap bodies storage, while the office and residential functions are situated upstairs, isolated from the other functions.

The dynamic facade of the building is unified by the shell made of anthracite corrugated sheet metal, applied on the entire surface, which fits both the industrial environment and the functions.
