From our Technical Report:
To match the architectural ambience at the other side of Gr. Apponyi Albert Street a light in colour, large blocked prefab concrete clad, modulated architecture of vertical stripes has been designed.
REPRESENTATION – ORDER - SAFETY
„Law enforcement palaces” of the past were characterized by a traditionally harmonious shaping of building mass, a usage of good quality building materials, a high quality of construction, and a most disciplined sort of elevations. To this day local inhabitants have been being under the influence of the sense of order and safety emitted by city center court buildings of the late XIX. century. At the same time the uniformed, industrialized architecture of the mid XX. century has passed rapidly into the limbo of history. It is the noble architecture stemming from tradition and locale that has to be rejuvenated and fitted to the requirements and expectations of the XXI. century.
A rejuvenated image:
TRANSPARENCY AND PROPORTIONS – CUSTOMER FRIENDLY AMBIENCE – SUSTAINABILITY
Heritage of tradition and a rejuvenated image are most authentic when complementing each other. To fit into a provincial city milieu and to show a humanistic message for the future to the people are things to be done simultaneously. Order and transparency, space needs of different organizations and a visual balance of the new building masses, office functionality and an interiour design friendly to staff /customers, economical construction/ operation and high key solutions and appearance are to constantly be reconciled to each other.
