Budapest Underground Line M4 – Kálvin tér Station in Hungary by Palatium Stúdió Ltd.

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Article source: Palatium Stúdió Ltd.

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.

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: A4 studio Ltd.

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.

MESSER Gas Filling Station in Budapest, Hungary by A4 Studio Ltd.

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: A4 Studio Ltd.

The building process of the Oxygen and Dissousgas Company (ODV) started in 1952 in Újpest, the brownfield belt of Budapest. Because of its proximity to the Danube river Újpest was the area of industrial developments already in the 1920’s and 30’s (tannery, thread factory, lamp factory). The valuable original brick buildings were completed through continuous development until 1963. The MESSER company – the leading manufacturer and distributor of special technical and medical gases in Europe – purchased the site in 1988. Our company, A4 Studio accepted the commission in 2008 for designing the new production hall, laboratory, depositories and offices on the 47 000 m2 site. Our first design approaches reckoned with a new building (see images) but after an accurate architectural and structural analysis we decided in agreement with the investor to utilize the original brick buildings with modern extensions.  Design process happened in 2010-11 (see images). The refurbishment was completed in the summer of 2012 with 21st century architectural means and materials (anthracite colored metal cladding, glass surfaces, exposed concrete), the design indicates old and new structures.

Kocka bar in Budapest, Hungary by MINUSPLUS

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: MINUSPLUS

The Kocka bar is located in the heart of the entertainment district of Budapest, in the busy junction of a pedestrian walkway and the bar-street of Kazinczy utca. Its freestanding situation is unique in the surrounding, and the monolithic cubic volume (kocka translates to cube in Hungarian) is an easily recognizable landmark. It has a huge potential to become an iconic building of the entertainment district.

Gomba, Móricz Zsigmond körtér, in Budapest, Hungary by Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Article source: Hetedik Műterem Ltd

The construction of the transportation-related building on Móricz Zsigmond Circus, Budapest was completed in 1943, according to the design of József Schall; and because of its shape later it was identified as the “Mushroom” by the word of mouth. Originally a departure building, cash- and waiting room and a café were placed in three building sectors under the roof with a ring-shaped layout. A fountain stood in the middle of the ring (stone relief by László Szomor). Shortly after its completion the building was roughly converted, transformers were placed into one of its circle sectors. The structure has started to be a slum-like environment already in the ’70s. For its particular spatial space composition and extremely slim reinforced concrete details it has been recorded as a listed building under monumental protection since 1997.

Apartment in Buda, Hungary by Szen Molnar Tamas

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Article source: Szen Molnar Tamas

While the apartment was under construction the bachelor who owns the place fell in love with the large uninterrupted space, but he also wanted to be able to separate the traditional functions. Maintaining large spaces and separating rooms at the same time required a mobile solution. This bachelor pad has 2 more special features: the amazing panorama and the fact that the sun goes around in the space. These also led to unique interior design solutions.
