This new development is the extension of a summer camp built in the late 80s. The old buildings of the Folk Arts Camp were designed by Dezso Ekler and received wide publicity at the time. Now three new buildings are planned to build: a reception building, a building for different activities and a building accommodating sanitary facilities. The local council insisted on the new constructions also bearing the mark of the original buildings’ architect, and the designer interpreted this by enlarging his signature as buildings.

Nagykálló is situated in north-eastern Hungary. The Folk Arts Camp located next to the town provides a home for various cultural groups that endeavour to keep folk traditions alive. During the summers, children and youths are taught folk songs, dances, and crafts, like weaving, pottery, woodcarving, basket making, leatherwork and blacksmithing. The existing main communal buildings include the Dance Hall (1986), the Dining Building and the old Bath Building (1987), the Lookout Tower and the old Reception Building (1989).

The new Reception Building will accommodate visitors with all services including renting and first aid. In the Activities Building courses in arts and crafts will take place. These two buildings will be built of wood with acacia poles and impregnated larch cover.

The new Bath Building will be fenced with withy braid, its  structure and roof built from pre-rusted boilerplate. With entry courtyards opening up to the main directions of approach it will contain toilets, sinks, showers and also wash basin in the entrance lobbies.

Operating energy-efficiently as autonomous building, it will collect rain water on the roof to supply most of the rinse water with it. Domestic water for showers, basins and wash will be solar heated with coils on the roof and collected in four hot water tanks in the substructure.
