The office of Yandex in Saint Petersburg is special. It is the brightest and the most unusual office of the company with lots of original visual solutions. As the company has been dynamically developing within the last years, it required more new space for the office. So, they started with 1800 sq.m in Saint Petersburgin 2008, and by 2014 the office has grown to occupy about 10000 sq.m and three floors. Its last part, the fourth one already, occupies the third floor of Benua business centre.

Underground line M4 in Budapest, Hungary has been the largest infrastructure project of the city for the last decades. Kálvin tér is one of the largest stations on the new line, due to its position as an interchange station with line M3 under a busy inner city square. The complex functional requirements of the station have resulted in a rather complex spatial arrangement. Since the initial decision was to use cut-and-cover construction technologies to create station structures, the basic architectural idea was to use the advantages of this system, and create large open spaces over the platforms. In our case, the main spatial attractions are the structural elements with their characteristic curved forms. Approaching passengers can feel the drama of movement in space as the escalators are placed freely in the void of the huge open concrete box. Arriving by the elevators through the strata of space holds a similar surprise. The roughness of the surfaces of the large structural elements and the perimeter walls is balanced by the fine finishes of elements closer to the passengers. The interconnection tunnel between the two underground lines has a vivid colour scheme which creates a link between two epochs of urban infrastructure.

The Wave-House will be situated at Ramberg-Stranden in Lofoten, Norway. At this particular site the coast is formed as a concaved bay covered with white sand. As the sandy beach is meeting the sea with exceptionally slight and curved slope the idea is based on a wave that rises in curve creating the house.

Already more than 200 years, Siófok is the Capital City of Lake Balaton, which is the largest lake in Middle-East Europe. We planned the “Sió Pláza” Shopping Centre into the middle of the renewable main square of the centre of the renewable downtown. The modern XXI. Century building is situated between the two historical symbols of the city, the Water Tower, was built in 1912, and the Pub, was built in 1895. Our aim was to plan a building that communicates with its environment, the historical city centre, continuously. We developed a transparent glass facade towards the main square of the city, with a cobweb-like metal screen.The shops were strung on 3 levels onto the inner shopping arcade of the shopping centre. The food and drug store received place on the minus first floor, the restaurant, branch and other services on the ground floor and the first floor. The entertainment (cinema, bowling, restaurants) is situated in the supreme floor. The building of the old Pub is integrated into the new building by the inner shopping arcade. The new functions are a bookshop and a cafe, with own garden. The remaining facades are planted with green plants.

For the first time since the fall of communism,the Baia Mare’s city government is trying to revitalize the city’s identity, unique in Europe because of the \”The Baia Mare Art School of Painting – (founded in 1896)\” by creating workshops for artists, creative camps, and exhibition spaces. Inspired by this initiative the project that I propose represents a new monument that will historically contribute to this city – a new landmark, daring and poetic, which rebirths the spirit of “The Baia Mare Art School of Painting”. I wish that this city will become a magnet for plastic artists.

MO House is located at an area of steep slope facing the sea coast of Chile in the commune of Zapallar. The house is buried with clearly no intention to interrupt the wonderful view to the horizon from the public road,so it is accessed by stairs and ramps going deep into the mountain to discover again, from inside the house, the sea, coast and breaker.
