építész Stúdió completed a residential housing project on an interesting site in the outskirts of Budapest. An underground water reservoir of Pest and a public park that surrounds the building ensure that the environment will stay untouched and natural for a long time. It is a big deal for a residential area which is quite dense.
Because of the local regulations, the architects built a relatively big house compared to the neighboring buildings. However, they wanted to maintain the scale of the project similar to its surroundings. So, the architects divided the housing into two blocks and connected them with an entrance area, garage, and a roof garden. By doing this, the architects have also recreated the original, previously mined inclination of the site.
Furthermore, the team has also articulated the block as additive elements, to create elevated terraces and gardens for the upper-level apartments. Because of this, the house looks like several family houses composed into a whole, rather than a residential block divided into flats.
