The design of this Sport and Conference Center in Felcsút is inspired by organic architecture, an architectural philosophy that seeks to create a balance between human habitation and the natural world. The slate roof is clad in Cupa Pizarras CUPA 12 natural roofing slate. The center was designed by the prominent Hungarian architect Imre Makovecz (1935-2011), an important advocate of organic architecture.
The material provided for the impressive 7800m2 roof was the dark grey, smooth CUPA 12 slate.
An Architectural Challenge
This project was a great challenge in terms of design and quality. The design of the building was followed by Imre Makovecz, and the building was built according to Tamás Dobrosi’s plan between September 2017 and August 2018. Cupa Pizarras slate was provided by Tető Horn Ltd. in Hungary and fulfilled all the project requirements successfully. The company provided a high-quality natural slate as built-in material, as well as experienced workmanship and service, meeting all the deadlines.
This impressive building is reminiscent of the luxurious football stadium Pancho Arena in Hungary, another outstanding project covered with Cupa Pizarras slate also designed by Imre Makovecz.
