A new Class A office building in Budapest’s CBD is to be delivered this year. The former electrical transformer building will comprise 2,630 sqm of modern office space on five floors. According to the developer, Markó Irodák 9 (MI9) is tailored to meet the requirements of creative workshops, start-up companies and other undertakings taking an up-to-date approach in general.
This Art Deco building, constructed in 1930 as an electrical substation for the district called Lipótváros, is now under national protection as a historical monument. The project entitled Markó Irodák 9 was launched three years ago with the aim of keeping the transformer building’s impressive form and style, while creating up-to-date interior design and fit-out inside with new functions. Instead of fixed “office cells” an inspiring environment has been created in the whole of the building, relying on its existing, special spatial structure. The wide variety of spaces, their access to natural light, the lofts, green terraces and sunrooms equally contribute to the playfulness of space.
White Star Real Estate is the adviser to the building’s owner.
