Vikár & Lukács architects studio won the commission for this project on a competition for a new iconic headquarter of the hungarian autoklub. The main gesture of the building is a ribbon that wraps around the office spaces on seven floors, while articulating a letter ‘a’. As the site is located near the danube bridge, local politicians appreciated to have a building that works as a point of orientation for drivers that arrive to district ujpest.

Hungarian Autoklub Headquarters

The main hall and service functions are found on the ground floor, while on the very top, under the arc is a rooftop terrace for representative meetings. the looping strip is about 1,0 meter thick, it has a changing width and deforms as it articulates the loop. The two component of the building comes back also in the material usage, the strip without openings with metal cladding, and the glass curtainwall of the wrapped building volume. using geothermal energy system in the building helped us to free the rooftop from technical devices.
