As architects, we work with spaces. We create new living spaces in already existing, living environment while affecting the ecosystem around us. This is a great responsibility and we must respect the task ahead of us. DANUBIO was born in this spirit. The consequence of everything that defines one of Budapest's most extraordinary sites will be part of the living tissue of trees, waters and the city.
DANUBIO evokes the classic Danube atmosphere. You can take pleasant walks on the coastal promenade or enjoy the carefree undulating Danube while relaxing on the benches.
We also provide daily recreation for our residents who are lovers of boating and water sports, as the harbor on the coastal promenade can be reached in a few minutes.
The eco-green corridor of the Rákos stream lining the southern side of the site is renewed, so whether you are coming from Váci út or Népfürdő utca, thanks to the public park and recreational developments, you can easily leave the bustling city behind, either on foot or arriving by car.
The safety of the tree-lined eco-corridor will not be lost even when we arrive, as the enclosed garden surrounding the building will provide tremendous green space and a playground.
DANUBIO is located in the 13th district of Budapest on the south shore of FOKA Bay, 5 minutes from Váci út, close to Árpád Bridge and the entrance section of the M3 motorway, a few minutes walk from Dagály Bath, directly on the Danube bank.
The built environment is bordered on the south by the Danube Arena and on the north by the Marina Beach, while the other sides of the plot are bordered by a natural environment, the Rákos stream, FOKA Bay, the green areas surrounding the building and the Danube. The site is easily and quickly accessible both by land and water.
The project is located on the only building site in Budapest and Vizafogó that is adjacent to the main branch of the Danube, so not only in scale, but in relation to its surroundings, it is a one-off work that could not be built anywhere else.
