Here is a new residential project by David Long Architects. This time we have a traditional English family house to convert something much more interesting.
The point of this competition was to convert a bus/tram terminal into a cultural centre. The original terminal was a one-storeyed round building was built in 1944. Some additional areas had to be added so new levels must have been built/designed. Our entry was designed by Miklós Miltényi and Emese Virt added another circular levels similar to the original building and the whole design was given some little more spin. On the extra levels a concert hall a bar and an exhibition area was formed accompanied with some terraces with nice view to the city.
My part was to make some visualisations as usual…

It is quite comfortable to push new things on a blog BUT some nice stuff sink easily in time… So there are some images worth to check.
This post will be available in the menu and some more to come so check back soon… 🙂
Some years ago I worked on a very nice family villa on the calm hilly Buda side of the city designed by Miklós Miltényi and Emese Virt.
A new family house in Chigwell, the UK designed by David Long. Model and renders were made by me.
Conception plans for a residential complex consist of approximately 3000 flats. Many concepts for the residential and for the public buildings were made. In addition to the dwellings we designed sport facilities, kindergarten and school as well. Our goal was to create a solid and diverse design in the same time.
A very interesting project was to design a modern style weekend house in a small city next to the lake Balaton. We decided to make a ‘mini competition’ in the office so our client could choose from different designs. Finally my design was chosen so the final plans were made based on that.
The 15th district of Budapest organised a national competition for ideas renovating the central area of the district. The main goal was to design a new public area made by the excellent garden designer team of Pagony. The second task was to design a Cultural Centre which integrates to the new area. This building was designed and visualised by me.
Our entry won second prize on the competition out of 65 works.
The European Union decided to build ‘Information Points’ in the capitols of EU countries to help people to get information easier about the EU. Also some cultural events as concerts, exhibitions and lectures take place here. The first of this kind of Information Points were made in Budapest.
Our goal was to create a friendly – not businesslike – place where people can have a coffee and can read some useful information about the EU or one of the newspapers of a few European countries.
The main counter which serves the information and the café as well was made of prefabricated concrete. Some traditional elements were used as modernized pieces of old furniture – bench and table – and cement tiles which has 100 years of tradition alongside iconic modern furniture.
Next to the stairs an exciting Hungarian invention was used – a partition wall made of translucent concrete showing the contours of the visitors climbing the stairs.
Our work was published in leading Hungarian architecture magazines as Octogon and Atrium.
