‘Instead of the straight translation of the brief, such as creating a volcano shaped museum building, we wanted to capture the true substance of the location. According to our concept, the raw materials, the homogeneous grey of the concrete, the lava inspired colour of the corten steel, and the flue-like arrangement of the space, deliver the spirit and essence of a volcano’.
– Laszlo Foldes, chief designer of Foldes Architects

Modern materials were used, with the aim to ensure sustainability; the substances were weatherproof and time resistant. The concrete construction, the metal sheet coverings all provided proper protection against local extreme climate conditions.

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’.

Pannonhalma Visitors Center
The architects proposed a contemporary building in the continuity of a thousand years of change. Instead of merely building on top of the hill, a greater part of the program, especially the car park, is situated completely underground. The centre is integrated into the traffic circulation plan leading visitors straight to the car park. Through a careful system of stairs and ramps, the visitors reach the visible part of the building housing the restaurants, the terrace and auditoria. The underground car park not only ensures an unprecedented view, it factually restores the landscape.

Budapest City Hall : international competition win
Erick van Egeraat won the international competition to design the City Hall in the centre of Budapest. From a field of 18 participants, an international professional jury selected his proposal, which combines restoration of the existing 18th century baroque building and new, futuristic wings to create a contemporary Main Square. This proposal makes an end to a period of almost three centuries of uncertainties at this unique plot in the Heart of Budapest.

Hotel Balneum
The buildings mass and the scale of certain architectural elements, as well as the proportions of these elements are based on local traditions , however this is not a mechanical copy of traditional folk architecture, rather a way of concipiation, which shall by no means mitigate the contemporary tone. The entire complex is permeated by the traditional local spirit. This, of course is not in contrast with modern engineering – on the contrary it is very much in line with the objectives of modern building engineering, since as we return to the ecological way of life – we do nothing but continue or ancestors’ tradition.

Tulipán Street Buda
The newly built condominium was built by the Architectural plans of Ferdinand and Ferdinand. It was not an easy job, not only because of the difficult site conditions, slope and narrowness of the area, but also because the neighboring building is very close to the fence. That’s way, because the building has been divided into two mass: a longitudinal, gradually sloping on the top and a cube on the bottom, which are connected by a thin wing.
