hungarian architecture practice atelier peter kis has designed a multi-storey mixed-use complex in the józsefváros district of budapest. ‘práter street’ accommodates shops and retail opportunities on the ground level with apartment units from the first to sixth floor. a series of extended terraces between the east and west buildings becoming exterior catwalks that connect the residential floors together. ranging from partial to fully-spanned, the terraces convey a sense of velocity and movement over the courtyard.

using the site as a point of reference, the final building outline, volume and form were determined by the scale and proportion of the surrounding structures. the project resembles a disconnected ‘L’ with the space between the short and long arms generating an inner garden and courtyard. this opening also visually connects the street to the inner space of the new block while providing natural sunlight to enter each apartment unit.

the protruding terraces are continued on the south facade, continuing the language of the courtyard to the street facade. the varying lengths of the balconies and overhangs play off of one another to create a distinct identity for the face of the building.
