MadiLancos Studio Moves to ZenGarden

MadiLancos Studio, one of Hungary’s leading design firms has signed a new lease in the renewed ZenGarden by ConvergenCE. The tenant will move into the office building located in Inner Buda in the spring of 2021.

The prestigious architectural and design practice will build its nearly 400 m2 new headquarters according to its own plans on the seventh floor of the recently spectacularly renovated building. The design follows the principles of “Activity Based Working”, separating the zones of focused work, loud brainstorming, processing, formal and informal consultations within the design workshop. There will be no dedicated desks with the nearly 30 employees using the office in a desk-sharing system. The workshop atmosphere is also reflected in the design with the use of natural materials and colours providing the intended restrained, neutral and calm background for the architectural work. MLS’ team is committed to sustainable development, which is why the new office aims to achieve LEED ID+C Gold certification, which determines a number of design decisions from material selection to lighting control.

Concerning the announcement of the move, founding owner Krisztina Sárosdi-Mádi said: “It is an important milestone for us to move our headquarters from a flat office to an A-category office building after more than two decades. ZenGarden is a professionally managed, well located, refurbished building where we can, not only work in an inspiring environment, but also welcome our clients in a representative setting. The unique interior space designed by our creative team will be perfectly complemented by the wonderful panorama of the Parliament and the Castle district which one can enjoy from here. Our decades long acquaintance with the landlord ConvergenCE and our productive working relationship guarantee a smooth and long-term cooperation.”

Dóra Papp-Vas, Leasing Director of ConvergenCE, added: “From the very beginning, our companies have worked together many times on several buildings, so it is a special pleasure for us to welcome MadiLancos Studio among our tenants. This is a successful collaboration, as we have the same comprehensive approach to asset and property management as MadiLancos Studio has towards office design services. As their complex, holistic approach encompasses the whole span of the project from space planning to turnkey handover beyond the traditional role of an architect, we similarly integrate owner, landlord, property manager and project management expertise for the best results. In both cases, the goal is to maximise customer service and satisfaction.”
