The target of the project was the restoration of a apartment, of a residential building, in a green area of Budapest. The owner and client is a young, self-conscious but flexible person, who creatively contributed to the realization, from the design to the building management. The external walls and the slabs of the building are build with reinforced concrete, resulting an echo in the internal spaces, therefore one of the restoration purpose was the improvement of the acoustical properties.
Our team’s engagement contained the following:
- Existing situation documentation: the plans, descriptions and photo documentation of the spaces, surfaces, installations, etc. The composing of the Client’s expectations.
