Atrinova office building refurbished
The renovation of Budapest's Atrinova office building is now complete, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The façade, the ground floor hall and reception of the building have been completely renewed with a modern environmentally conscious architectural approach. The building is owned by Deka Immobilien and is managed by White Star Real Estate, with Colliers Hungary providing technical support.
Located in the heart of District V, on Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út, the office building has been offering high-quality services and working environment to its tenants since its opening in 1998, with a full occupancy rate on a total leasable area of 10,500 sqm.
The first phase of the renovation of Atrinova began in 2017, with the creation of a community space on the seventh-floor offering dining, leisure, and workplace well-being opportunities, and the refurbishment of the common spaces with contemporary interior design.
The guiding principle behind the current, new design of the building was the architectural character of the historic city center of Budapest, as Atrinova is located in a protected area between the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Budapest Danube panorama and the World Heritage-listed Andrássy út.
According to the press release, the renovation of the façade and the hall was a complex task, as it was necessary to preserve the protected architectural and historical environment, while at the same time creating the functional conditions for the building to meet today's requirements was also an aim.
The light-colored façade, designed by Zsuffa and Kalmár Architect Studio, features new horizontal ledges with a distinctive appearance and a regular system of vertical glass shading elements, which create a familiar appearance among the surrounding façades also providing a more sustainable energy solution for the building due to the provision of adequate lighting and shading.
The concept of the façade transformation is also present in the lobby, where instead of using rapidly deteriorating decoration the application of glass elements, light and shade were considered as primary "building materials". The space of the three-story lobby was divided by traditional architectural tools such as a ledge and a shading system.
