WING Zrt is the new owner of the area earlier known as Siemens Estate. They invited LAB5 for an architectural competition about the future of the block.
We provided a vision based on an open, permeable green park in the heart of the development. The series of the built volumes were shaped as vivid sculptures standing like mountains by a valley. Many of the existing buildings from the old factory and office buildings were saved and integrated into the concept.
The proposed final shape of the environment is based on a large number of simulations of the comfort parameters and attributes affecting operation (sun, wind, temperature, etc.).
