Futó Street Apartment House

A fine example of the new buildings in the rehabilitation area of the 8th district (Józsefváros) is the 73 unit apartment house in Futó street. Connected to existing historical buildings, the six-story street wing left enough place for the construction of a courtyard wing as well. The corridor system of the inside facades were inspired by the 19th century tenement houses of Budapest. The two wings are interconnected by a corridor-block covered with glass laminae. The street wing is proportioned with characteristic forms and appears as a contrast to the greyish street environment. The ground floor is covered with limestone and black granite; while the red glass panels as parapets make colorful spots on the upper levels. The finely proportioned, thoroughly considered building reminds us of the golden age of apartment house construction in Budapest between the two world wars.
