We are happy to announce that Jaeger Kahlen Partner has won an international competition for the future urban planning development of the new community hub in the center of Budapest. Sharing the first prize with HPP architects, we enforced against 10 international offices. With honorable recognition from jurors our project proposal is appointed for the further realization.
Liget City, a mixed use development is located in central Budapest, seeks to transform a long dormant site into a vibrant and bustling community hub. The site represents 6 different plots that are part of a bigger and unique city block where the mixed-use program is in combination between residential blocks and old industrial buildings which are forming a great part of the inner area and urban block perimeter in present day. The proposed development will bring residential units, student dormitory, retail, creative office spaces and a boutique hotel to the site while in the same time several existing buildings which are under heritage protection will be preserved and be part of the lively urban planning vision.
场地关系 Urban Link
A series of passageways and public plazas provides urban links in to the site, which culminates at a large public park at the center. At the heart of the design is more than 2000 sqm. of accessible open space, designed to serve as buffer zone between existing and new buildings. This new amenity recalls the history of the site, which in the 16th century was a richly landscaped beyond the historical city moat (Liniengraben). Smaller- scale commercial and residential buildings are interspersed with the open landscape space to create an environment that offers improved public amenities, while relating to the character of the surrounding residential streets. Parking and service areas are concealed within the site’s topography or integrated with the landscape, and vehicle entry and exit points are discreetly situated and covered by terraces and landscaping.
