“Reutilise whatever you can, do not cover or paint anything just to make it look nice!” – this is the
creed of the founding architects of Bánáti + Hartvig Architect Office. It is in this spirit that they
created their new office building, using the guidelines of circular architecture as a basis. It was
obvious to the architects that they did not intend to increase the environmental burden with a new
building; they wanted to reutilise an already existing old building by all means. Besides, they
reintegrated into the building some components that were previously demolished – sometimes
even giving them a different function –, and they left the revealed surfaces in their demolished
state: the concrete beams remained uncovered and the brick walls unpainted. This gesture
follows the principles of sustainable architecture, giving us an insight into the history of the
building and resulting in innovative yet coherent aesthetics.
While designing and constructing their own office building, the architects of BH gained a wealth of
experience about sustainable architecture. They are pleased to share this knowledge with those
interested, thus also contributing to awareness-raising on the trend of sustainable architecture.

Constructor: RAW Development Ltd


The reconstruction of the building concluded the revitalisation of the area surrounding Széll Kálmán Square in Budapest; the underpass in Várfok Street was built, creating a level-connection between Széll Kálmán Square and Krisztina Boulevard to facilitate pedestrian and cyclist links in the neighbourhood.
The area next to the building was joined to the green surface of Vérmező as an urban park for common use. This created the most significant green arc of Buda – extending from the Elizabeth Bridge to Millenáris Park.
A three-level underground car park was constructed under the building and the garden.
The unique and iconic historical building was restored to its state at the time of its construction based on the original designs, with the original materials, technology and the same ambitiousness.
The building interior was developed with sophistication, using customised furnishings and contemporary Hungarian works of fine art to enrich the interior spaces.
The building is controlled by an intelligent supervisory system for the purpose of minimising energy consumption and ensuring the most efficient operation of the building.
There is a small solar power plant on the roof, which reduces the building’s mains electricity demand. Cooling and heating are ensured by an air heat pump.

Az ingatlanfejlesztés koncepciója

A turai kastélyt báró Schossberger Zsigmond építtette 1883-ban, melynek köszönhetően egy a francia palotákat idéző, olasz formavilággal dolgozó épület született. A kastély az utóbbi évtizedekben elhanyagolt állapotba került, az épület a TRA Real Estates Kft. beruházásának jóvoltából menekülhetett meg az enyészettől. A kastély felújításának köszönhetően az egykori főúri rezidencia ma 19 szobás elegáns szállodaként, valamint exkluzív rendezvényhelyszínként működik tovább BOTANIQ Turai Kastély néven. A komplex felújítás mintegy 30 hónapig tartott, melynek során nem csak az épület és a kastélypark műemlékvédelmi helyreállítását tartották szem előtt. A kastély számos elismerésben is részesült: elnyerte a 2021-es Tájépítészeti Nívódíjat, a Booking.com Traveller Review Awards 2021 elismerését, az International Travel Awards versenyen „Legjobb Európai Kastélyhotel 2021” és „Magyarország legjobb 5 csillagos szállodája 2022” díjakat illetve „Legjobb Rendezvényhelyszín – vidék” kategóriájában győzedelmeskedett az idei Business Excellence díjátadón.

The purpose of the development was to enhance the importance of the place of pilgrimage, to present the construction history, and to increase the complexity of the place of worship. The architectural concept achieved these objectives through a more open connection to the city centre, increasing the receiving capacity of the place of worship, expanding the functions, raising the spatial organisation to a higher level, restoring or reconstructing the known and unearthed works of art, restoring and improving the technical condition of the temple, and bringing the IT capabilities to a significantly higher level. After restoration, the main altar of the pilgrimage church was returned to its place and the entire interior was renewed. The sacristy was expanded to serve the new liturgical space outside, the oratory and its surroundings were developed into an exhibition space, the internal traffic order of the parish was expanded towards the event hall on the basement level. With the new expansion of the crypt, it became an urn burial place. The pilgrim yard and the Holy Well gained more capacity for visitors with the demolition of the fences, the new external liturgical space, the pilgrim entrance and shops, as well as the new educational operation and social care building, and the restored Calvary.

At his sibling’s request, the local developer with a Roman Catholic upbringing constructed a new chapel and community space on the real estate returned to congregation at the time of the change of regime. This opportunity was created by the successful business that he has run for 31 years.
On the site of the rebuilt chapel, there had originally been a school chapel since 1860, which functioned as a school on weekdays and served as the venue of masses on Sundays. With the new building, a new community focal point was created in one of the longest villages in Hungary, which intends to attract young people into a new intellectual space. It can operate as a sort of cultural centre, where the newly created spaces can serve as venues for weddings, ordinations, youth programmes and – due to the proximity of the cemetery – mortuary viewings in addition to congregation programmes.

Municipality of Debrecen City with County Rights
Aquaticum Debrecen Ltd (former name: Debrecen Health Spa Ltd)
Designer: BORD Építész Stúdió Ltd
Constructor: HUNÉP Plc


On the site of the already existing pool at the heart of the Debrecen Great Forest, a municipal water park was created: a likeable place offering modern experiences. Aquaticum features fun elements for all generations, while also lining up one-of-a-kind visual elements: clearly linked to Debrecen and the Great Forest, the building is an iconic landmark.
As there was no possibility of increasing the area and no intention to reduce the size of the green surface, the primary attraction is a 12-metres high main building accommodating a 400-metre-long waterslide, a lounge cave, and several pools: an adventure pool, thermal pools, a swimming pool, and a sun terrace on the top of the building. The different functions are divided by water curtains or plant walls. The medicinal pools, the children’s pool and wave pool, the wild-water pool, as well as the sports grounds, the gym park and the playground were placed around the building. The building unit constituting one of the water park’s walls is home to restaurants serving customers both inside and outside the establishment.

The interior space is limited by a circumferential façade symbolising the waves of the water. The enclosed part of the façade is composed of fixed panels of different shades of blue, while transparency is ensured by sophisticated curtain walls in the more open parts.
Two main entrances and therefore two reception halls were created in the building. Some of the service functions – including the toilets, the accessible toilets, and the cloakroom – are located on the basement level. The further service functions were placed on the ground level, under the bleachers: temporary buffets, a cleaning supply room, a sports equipment room and a storage unit. In addition to a 50-m competition pool, a 25-m warm-up pool and a 12.5-m training pool established in the pool space, a jacuzzi and a children’s pool were established in the spa area. Tepidariums (warm rooms) were set up in both the ground-floor spa section and the sauna world upstairs, where there is a variety of recreational facilities: an infrared sauna, a steam sauna, a Finnish sauna, and a devil’s sauna. The Finnish saunas are glass-walled saunas, offering a view of the pool space. The changing rooms for teams are located upstairs, along with the offices, the meeting rooms, the gym, the TV, sound and light room/security room, the sound and light server, as well as the press room/parents’ waiting room. When no competition is taking place in the building, the press room can be used as a parents’ waiting room overlooking the pool. From here, the parents can see all the larger pools and observe the trainings.

A HUNGEXPO Revitalizációja elnevezésű beruházásról szóló kormányzati döntés 2019- ben született meg.
A Beruházás hatására az évek alatt leromlott állapotúvá vált környék, környezet revitalizációjára, a létesítmények bővítésére, felújítására és a teljes terület építészeti és tájépítészeti megújítására került sor. A csúcstechnológiát magas építészeti minőség kíséri, amelynek eredménye egy, a 21. századi követelményeknek megfelelő kiállítás- és konferencia központ, melynek innovatív műszaki és környezettudatos megoldásai hozzájárulnak az energiatakarékos üzemeltetéshez.
A fejlesztés legnagyobb és egyben legösszetettebb épülete az új Kongresszusi Központ. Az épületen belül elhelyezkedő nagyterem Közép-Európában elsőként olyan nézőtéri technikát kapott, amely lehetővé teszi, hogy a széksorokat a színpad szintjébe forgassák, süllyesszék, így néhány perc alatt a konferenciák, előadások moziterem-szerűen megemelt széksorai helyén egy 2 ezer négyzetméteres gálavacsora helyszín alakítható ki. A terem többféle felhasználási lehetőségét bővíti továbbá az ország legnagyobb LED-fala, amit a színpad mögé építettek fel.
A beruházás egyik leglátványosabb eleme az új, 7900 nm-es F1 fogadó épület. Az építmény három szimmetrikus szirom formáját idézi, acél és üveg elemekből áll, ezáltal teljes panorámát biztosít a környező zöld területre.
A kiállítási terület két új pavilonnal bővült, miközben teljesen megújultak a régebben épült csarnokok is, így összesen 75 000 m2 fedett rendezvénytérrel rendelkezik. Az új Kongresszusi Központtal kibővülve tökéletes helyszín a kiállítások mellett konferenciák, kongresszusok és más nagyszabású vállalati- és szövetségi rendezvények lebonyolítására is.

Investor: LIVING II. Real Estate Development Investment Fund
Designer: Hevesi and Partner Architect Studio Ltd
Constructor: T-Trans Főép Ltd

Metropolitan Garden is located at Országbíró Street 54 in the 13th District of Budapest, in the immediate vicinity of Béke Square. The particularity of its situation is given by the green belt and the proximity of the inner city. In the immediate vicinity of the neighbourhood with excellent public transportation infrastructure, there is a wide range of shopping opportunities, a local government office, a playground, a nursery school, as well as a well-designed park located only 100 metres away from the project site. The floor areas of the apartments with efficient floor plans range from 30 to 110 square metres; taking into account the emerging needs, the majority of the flats offered were around 50-60 square metres. A special feature of the residential park was that the roof level was destined to accommodate fully customisable homes with terraces and panoramic view of the Buda hills.
In addition to its excellent technical quality and prime location, the value of Metropolitan Garden lies in the smart solutions provided by the residential park and the wide spectrum of community services, with which LIVING aims to improve the quality of life of those living here.

As a part of Europe’s largest cultural development, the Liget Budapest Project transforms the experience of culture in Budapest including the creation and renovation of several cultural institutions, while establishing new leisure opportunities and green areas within the city’s central City Park.
The House of Music Hungary – designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto – as part of the Liget Project houses a range of interactive experiences in celebration of music-making. It is designed across three levels to encourage visitors to participate and interact with sound and music; subterranean exhibition level, ground floor performance area, and roof top level with museum education.
The vision for the House of Music Hungary is to bring the experience of music to life through the interaction of nature, sound and light, hosting a range of live music from classical to folk, pop to and electronical analogue sound, alongside exhibitions and education and learning programmes designed to create opportunities for anyone to play in this experience.
The 9,000m² (total floor area) building nested amongst the trees of the City Park is designed by Sou Fujimoto, Japanese architect. The designers have taken inspiration from the synergy between sound and nature; presenting the building as a continuation of its park context and an ambitious rethinking of a 21st century museum space.
The building is so special that anyone who passes by it is amazed. Its shape, its location in the City Park and its relationship with the environment and nature are special. Its dreamer, Sou Fujimoto, one of the most recognized figures in Japanese architecture today, carefully prepared his plan, which was selected as the winner in 2014 among 168 entries. Fujimoto studied the lights and colors of the City Park in different seasons, then created the shape and color world that melts the building into the heart of the City Park as if it had grown from there, while at the same time retaining its uniqueness and individuality. Its glass wall erases the rigid boundaries of "outside" and "inside"; entering the building from the park, it's like continuing our walk in then nature. This feeling is reinforced by the fact that the House itself follows a natural pattern: its nearly one hundred light wells on the roof transmit the sunlight with their golden inner covering; its stylized golden leaves made of Japanese patterns (which were inspired by the leaf ceiling of the Great Hall of the Academy of Music!) cover the space like the canopy of a miracle tree, and the trunk is formed by slender, steel gray columns. And the roots penetrate far underground. The musical experience begins in the immediate vicinity of the House: an open-air stage and a musical playground offer entertainment for both children and adults walking by.

Constructor: West Hungária Bau Ltd

The investment aimed to develop the castle of Bodajk into a tourist destination hosting interactive, world-class hunting and cultural events and drawing from hunting traditions, while taking the aspects of monument protection into consideration. On the one hand, the Bodajk hunting lodge offers a special, unique exhibition to the tourists arriving in the region, where visitors can find out about hunting traditions in a 21 st century environment; on the other hand, the interactive display devices also provide an opportunity to train the forestry professionals of the future. In the design of the exhibition spaces, the needs of several age groups were taken into account. The interactive spaces present the different hunting areas of the world, which makes the building a suitable venue for customised educational programmes. The programme is made even more unique and memorable by the experience of an expanded reality. The visitors can also participate in virtual safaris and hunting tours. The renewal of the castle park and its involvement into the exhibition programme were other important elements of the renovation.

The overall development goal of the Hegyvidék Municipality is to provide high-quality living conditions and services, improve the quality of life of the district’s residents, and support educated and informed citizenship.
No urban space has historically been formed in the inner part of district 12 that would play the role of a local city center. The development of Böszörményi út to become the main street of Hegyvidék is a defining element of the district's integrated urban development strategy.
The real estate development aims to attract attention to the main street that could fill the missing local central role. The two pillars of this process are the creation of a multifunctional community space and the provision of related institutions and services for the inhabitants.
The Cultural Salon, a popular public cultural institution of the Municipality, operated on Böszörményi út until 2018. Hosting many diverse events, the premises proved to be scarce over time. The Municipality wanted to provide a worthy venue for the Cultural Salon.
The complex development of the Városháza tér and its surroundings provided an opportunity to realize the above goals.

Az ingatlanfejlesztés koncepciója,

For years, one of the most beautiful buildings in Mohács, the Silk Factory (Selyemgyár), impressive even in its desolation, waited for its fate to turn for the better. The unique property with a panoramic view of the Danube became one of the jewels of Mohács after the renovation respecting the original architectural concept. The reborn building was formally opened in June 2021. On the ground floor of the main building there are office and business premises, while an event hall capable of accommodating 400 people was created on the upper floor, with additional service rooms connected to it. At the courtyard entrance of the main building steps that can also be used as a stage, the room serving the stage and ramps were completed. We installed the modern science of today in a nostalgic environment reminiscent of the industry of the past: the world of IT, programming and robots. An Innovation and Technology Centre and a children's playhouse were built in the originally hard silk storage building. In the place of the demolished buildings green surfaces, public parks, uniformly paved surfaces were created with street furniture, public and decorative lighting and public works of art.

Concept of the property development

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 colors, with Esterházy Bridge – which can also be regarded as the city’s new symbol – being its focal point.
This development goes far beyond the modernization 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 livable community spaces. With imposing and innovative technical solutions above the surface and renewed and modernized public utilities below the surface, it creates a lasting, safe, and livable environment for those living in and those passing through the city.

station: Swietelsky Vasúttechnika Kft.

The modernisation of the Gödöllő station – a high-traffic node of the BudapestKeleti (Eastern) Railway Station-Hatvan-Miskolc railway line – could not bedelayed any longer. The Royal Waiting Hall of Gödöllő was the first to berestored, in line with principles of the historic preservation. In the course of thecomplex reconstruction and modernisation of the railway station, the entire railinfrastructure was rebuilt: the key elements included new high platforms – alsosuitable for receiving HÉV (commuter railway) trains –, a new passengerunderpass, which now ensures municipal links to the University, as well as anew passenger check-in building, platform and space covers, lifts, premisesfor rent, and a new passenger information system.The floor plan layout of the Royal Waiting Hall previously did not reflect theoriginal state. The primary objective of the reconstruction was to give back tothe iconic building its former importance, to restore the original spatial system,and to turn it into a significant element of the railway node – even if notfunctioning anymore as a royal waiting hall.

Kivitelező: Hódút Kft.
Üzemeltető: Magyar Közút Nonprofit Zrt.

A megépült kerékpárút közvetlen és biztonságos, a közúti forgalomtól elválasztott összeköttetést biztosít a Tisza-tó két jelentősebb települése, Poroszló és Tiszafüred között, és pótolta azt a hiányzó láncszemet is, amely által a tó teljes egészében körbe-kerékpározhatóvá vált. A fejlesztés nagyban hozzájárult a Tisza-tó térségének turisztikai, ökoturisztikai fellendítéséhez. E cél érdekében már 2006-ban elkészültek az első tanulmánytervek, melyek a 33. számú főúttal párhuzamosan vizsgálták egy biztonságos kerékpáros útvonal kijelölését és létesítését, különös tekintettel a Tisza-tó és a Tisza folyó vízfelületének keresztezésére.

Wekerle Small Market

Candidate: Municipality of the 19th District of Budapest, Kispest

Designer András Füzes – Péter Tóth
Architects: Melinda Faragó, Kálmán Kis, Máté Mérő
Constructor: Zöld Ház Építő Ltd
PAN-MANFA Ltd

In 2008, on the occastion of the 100th anniversary of the construction of Wekerletelep, the Municipality and the Károly Kós Association launched an invitation for an architectural design competition intended to establish a new market on the site of the old row of stalls. The designers of the 2 winning tenders created a joint work, involving the students of the Itinerant School in the preparation of the detailed drawings. The new market had to be designed on a triangular plot of land, and the construction was required not to disturb the operation of the market in any way. During the planning phase, numerous design versions were born, which gave rise not only to a building serving the local community, but also to a local living space. The building – consisting of a ground floor and a loft – accommodates business premises, multifunctional community and sales areas, service areas, while a traditional small-scale producers’ market was developed in the area enclosed by the building. The specific visual identity of the market building is completed by the degree of elaboration in the architectural details, the custom-designed typography, the sheet metal ornaments based on the play of shadow and light, and the wooden shades. It is almost like time travel: rooted in the past, growing in the present and bringing fruits in the future.

“HUNGEXPO” F1 Reception Building

Investor-Developer:
EXPO PARK Real Estate Development, Trade and Service Limited Liability Company

Designer:
Finta and Partner Architect Studio Limited Liability Company
Péter Dóczé, DLA

Constructor:
KÉSZ Construction and Assembly Private Limited Company

Operator:
HUNGEXPO Budapest Congress and Exhibition Centre Private Limited Company


As the central building of the HUNGEXPO Congress and Exhibition Centre, the landmark-type reception hall named “F1” was developed within the framework of the revitalisation of HUNGEXPO. In addition to ticket offices, the building accommodates the entire back office of the operation, as well as the energy base of the exhibition and trade centre.
The building is composed of three symmetrical petals. The net floor area of the building – consisting of a basement, a ground level and 2 floors – is approximately 7,900 m2. The areas of visitor check-in and the infrastructure-related background functions (buffet, restrooms) were placed on the ground level. The floors give home to offices serving the operation and an event venue with capacity for 300 persons. The basement level and the attic are occupied by engineering rooms and the energetic centre of the building.

Counterbalancing the lean world of the pavilions, the building places emphasis on the reception area as an organic, contemporary architectural element. With its valuable leafy trees and clumps, the park was given a priority role in the shaping of the mass. The organic body blending into the environment was designed by the architect with a view to bypassing and protecting the park’s trees.
As a result of the bays of the neat, arched, and dynamic façade, as well as the effects of light and shadow, the building always shows a different face to its environment depending on the perspective.

Reformed Nursery School on Svábhegy and related service units
H-1125 Budapest, Felhő Street 8
Investor: Budapest – Svábhegy Reformed Congregation
Designer: OK2 Építész Iroda Ltd Designer in charge: Krisztián Olbert, Associates: Ádám Lendvay, Géza Bujdosó landscape and garden architect, Karolin Bán
Constructor: ETNA Ltd

As part of the Reformed Centre in Felhő Street, a nursery school building for 5 groups of pre-schoolers was established – along with the related service units (caretaker’s apartment, outdoor playground, overground car park, staff accommodation) – by utilising and reconstructing the former villa building.
The key factor determining the development was the intention to create an opening towards the old-wood environment, the church, and the manse. This had to be realised in a way that the building’s geometry can carry an additional meaning instead of being merely a layout necessary from a functional point of view: the embracing “protective” arm lends actual security to the enclosed play yard, and the glazed opening towards the big trees and the nature gives the building a sacred content. In an environmentally responsible way, the building uses ceiling cooling and heating with energy produced by a heat pump.

The investment significantly increases the number of available places in nurseries located in a favourable environment. Furthermore, the indoor and outdoor spaces created can become new venues for community life and community events.

Candidate: West Hungária Bau Ltd
Investor: Evangelical Congregation of Győr
Designer: Comfort Tervező Ltd
Constructor: West Hungária Bau Ltd


Insula Lutherana, the new centre of the local evangelical congregation, is situated in Győr’s new town, lying close to the bank of the River Rába.
The enormous classical group of buildings of the so-called Convention Building is one of the most significant monument complexes of Győr, extending all the way from the bank of the River Rába to Petőfi Square. Teachers at the evangelical grammar school operating here included János Kis, who organised the agile literature of the 18th-19th century and was one of those discovering the talent of Hungarian poet, Dániel Berzsenyi.
The renovation of all elements of the building complex can be regarded both as classic monument protection and contemporary architecture at the service of functional expansion.
The building complex includes the nursery school, the Archives, the Old Church, the parsonages, the old and the new school building, as well as the Convention Building with the pastoral office, the congregation hall, and the dormitory rooms.
The new buildings surround the “evangelical island”, entwined with the old ones. All this symbolises the new construction projects being concluded and Insula Lutherana becoming complete.
The renovation of the building complex not only enriches the Evangelical Church, but also the whole community of Győr, the neighbouring settlements, and in fact Hungary itself.

Hotel and Apartment House in Baross Square
H-1087 Budapest Baross Square 7-8; H-1087 Budapest, Mosonyi Street 4
Candidate: PBP Europlan – FBI Ltd
Investor: B & L Keleti LP
Designer: FBI Ltd
Constructor: DVM Group Ltd

The plot subject to the planning, situated on the southern side of Baross Square, had been vacant for decades, stretching between Baross Square and Mosonyi Street, bordered by closely built-in adjacent buildings. In 2007, the construction of the office building project was launched on the property but was later left unfinished due to the bankruptcy of the investor during the 2008 crisis, with only the civil engineering works having been completed (diaphragm wall, foundation plate, partial reconstruction of the subway ventilation tunnel). As the structural engineering works on the basement level had not been finished, the resistance of the work pit was insufficient. In order to ensure the stability of the adjacent buildings, in 2009 the bank continued the structural engineering works to the minimum necessary extent to support the diaphragm wall around with the ceilings of levels -3 and -2.
The plot was purchased by B&L, German property developer, in 2015 with the intention to develop a 3+ star hotel with 312 rooms on the Baross Square side, and a residential house accommodating 45 apartments with floor areas ranging between 30 and 95 m2 with a central corridor layout on the Mosonyi Street side. The level of lease is currently 80%.
