Laurus Offices Budapest
The financial crisis that has shaken the whole of Europe hasn’t left Budapest unscathed. The capital of Hungary has seen many of its projects and investments canceled. Luckily, this was not the case with the Laurus Offices building, developed by one of the major housing investors in the country: Erste Group Immorent.
Completed in 2011, this office building is the only one of its kind delivered in Pest in the past few years, presenting a strong trust pledge on Hungarian economic recovery and on new development of infrastructures.
This office building is special not only for its modern architectonic design and for its high standard technological solutions. Located only 10 minutes away from the airport and the city centre, it enjoys excellent public transport communications.
The 15,000 square metre project was divided into three office buildings with 5 to 7 floors and has an underground car park with 240 parking spaces. Following a university-like style, the offices rise over an enclosed garden.
The company wanted a flexible space that was capable of accommodating a big range of businesses, with different sizes and diverse needs. One of the three buildings that make up the complex has been rented to a business company of international prestige. The remaining space still available is being rented by the state agent CB Richard Ellis, as an exclusive agent.
Both the architectural team, S.A.M.O. KFT, and the director of the project, Óbuda-Újlak Zrt, decided on a glass façade, aiming to make the most of sunlight. Beneath it, insulation was placed.
URSA provided nearly 3,500 square metres of URSA GLASSWOOL KDP2, insulating the envelope in a 12 cm thick layer. In addition, the client also chose URSA’s GLASSWOOL TWF 1 to insulate all interior partition walls with a 5 cm thick layer.
