The town of Eger started a huge refurbishment program of the public spaces. We are hired by the landscape designer Táj-Consult to create some of the architectural feature.
The park called Érsekkert goes under big renovation, and the new plants from the Mediterranean climate need a glass house for the winter season. We are pretty inspired by the grape fields around the town, so we followed a bit the pattern and the way those grapes are protected from nature, and designed a pixelate glass cubature. During the cold dark nights we illuminate the plants from the ground, so the atmospheric green light decorates the park and gives a smooth calm atmosphere. During the cold days, you can access the glass house, and have a chitchat or just read a book inside.
The creek called Eger-patak is just the boundary of the park, we placed some floating concrete seats on its one side, and created a nice installation for the hot water out-drop point of the thermal bath, just on the opposite side.
The old water plant station will be refurbished into a little museum, introducing the history of water works around the town. We created the installation to be modest, and kept everything of the existing industrial building as much as it is possible.
The bridge crossing the stream will undergo renovation too, we designed some extra features on it, from banks to the decoration light.
