High quality architecture close to the banks of the Danube in Pest

The use of high-quality architectural solutions in the development of residential real estate is becoming more and more valuable. The task of the designers is to create unique concepts that are able to meet all the needs of the future residents. This is illustrated in the XIII. The Danube Terrace Grande residential park, which is being built next to Foka Bay in the district of.
Those looking to buy a home take into account a number of aspects when choosing a property that well reflect the different needs of the buyer. Among other things, energy-efficient, environmentally conscious solutions are becoming increasingly important, but the location of the building, transport connections and the related green infrastructure system also play a key role. In addition, international and domestic trends show that the design quality of real estate is also receiving increasing attention.

Among the most basic tools of architecture are the mass structure and the thoughtful composition of the facades. These are also independent factors that also affect the further details of the house: if the spaces of the building are built according to a logical, transparent system, it also helps the everyday lives of the residents. The location of the entrances to the blocks of flats is particularly important in this respect, as these spaces usually have important functionality: the reception service or the reception is also located here.

In addition to the practicality, there is a worldwide tendency to make the main entrance an exclusive and representative room, where residents and their arriving guests can get a favorable impression of the quality of the given residential park. The task of the architects in this case is to establish appropriate connections with the public areas and to select the appropriate cladding materials and colors for the use, which ideally does not stop at the entrance zone, but covers the entire traffic system.

On the basis of the type plans, in contrast to the panel housing estates made of prefabricated elements, the residential parks under construction today are competing with each other to win the favor of those looking for a home. Playing with facades gives each building a recognizable, characterful look, at the same time being able to highlight and yet connect them with their built and natural surroundings.
In addition to the interior and exterior of the building, the design of the intermediate spaces is also an important architectural issue. The relationship of the houses to each other determines the natural sunbathing, the pleasant view; and a well-thought-out installation makes it possible to create more usable green spaces between the buildings, which can raise the standard of the wider living environment and the whole area. In order to find the right structure, computer-based studies in the early phase of projects are becoming an increasingly common step among designers.

In Budapest, too, real estate is being built in several places, where the investor has chosen a team of designers who are able to work with a high level of tools with the tools listed above, keeping in mind the needs of the future residents. This is particularly well illustrated by the Danube Terrace Grande residential park in the northern part of Vizafogó, the two blocks of which were designed by different architects, so completely different solutions to similar challenges were found within the same project.


In the latest residential investment of the D&B Ingatlanfejlesztő group, Vadász Építész Stúdió designed the Danube Terrace Grande 1 building for the plot closer to the Danube, while the 2nd building of the building pair is the work of Óbuda Építész Stúdió. A total of 790 flats are being built in the two building complexes, making it the largest housing development in Hungary under one project at the same time.
The larger building with its 583 apartments alone represents an outstanding number of apartments.

The building, based on the plans of the Óbuda Architect Studio, led by János Plájer, is a colorful vision of youthful, vibrant, minimalist style features, according to the designer. All this was primarily to be achieved with the exciting façade architecture: the goal was to make a random, dynamic façade play appear on the building at first glance. Behind it is a carefully edited system of rules that includes 1-2, but in some places up to 3 levels, bringing a system into a wide variety of facades. The source of inspiration for the mass formation was the well-known Jenga game: the positive shapes pulled out of the whole simple main cube and the pushed negative shapes determine the composition of the façade.

The use of high-quality cladding elements is typical for both the external and internal use of the building. In the ground floor zones, where pedestrian traffic is more intense, colored paneled facade cladding appears, but similar elements characterize the cladding of certain balconies and other outdoor spaces. The use of color is not an end in itself, the harmonizing color scheme of the stairwells forms a unit between the foyer, the staircase and the corridors, including the entrance zone of the flats.

All of this serves the architects ’quest to make the building as a whole a more homely,“ residential-friendly ”environment, which is why every effort has been made to consider every circumstance down to the smallest detail. A good example of this is the widening of corridors in front of stair and elevator blocks, where more frequent use is expected.

The smaller building block designed by Vadász Architect Studio has “only” 207 apartments. Here, too, the exciting façade play makes the building unique, but based on a completely different concept: the architecture here is based on pairs of opposites. The undulating mass formation of the ground floor and roof level responds to the natural environment – water, topography – which is further strengthened by the use of warm colors. Between the two, almost floats the snow-white, strictly lined cube, characterized by a much more traditional, rational structure. In contrast to the lower and upper levels, this intermediate section seeks to reflect the built environment of the house. At the same time, this part of the façade is also characterized by a kind of planned randomness: the individual balconies and apartments are not separated by a wall, but the facades of certain rooms jump out into the rows of balconies. Bence Vadász, the leading designer of the building, likened this playfulness to the notes that appear between the score lines.
“The main goal in the case of the Danube Terrace Grande was to create a high-quality building complex that would meet the needs of the residents to the maximum, therefore we used state-of-the-art smart homes and green mechanical solutions. However, all of this alone is not enough; the spatial and mass structure created by the excellent architectural design also contributes greatly to the outstanding quality. The two blocks thus meet the most modern housing construction requirements. ” – emphasized Zoltán Ádám, the project manager of the investment.
