The design and siting offer active communication with the buildings users and its built environment. The public space plays an important rule in our design, it came to life obviously and naturally. The „cloister” recites the ancient Agora, it runs around the public square in front of the town hall. The „tower” of the Munkácsy street building volume is a moderate symbol.

The building follows the site levels, we adapted the building to the slope.
The used materials are both traditional and contemporary, the buildings appearance avoids unnecessary decorative elements, reflects function and architectural quailty.
