About the studio
The studio consists of a group of architects working on different fields of design, consultancy and property development. In the past few years, the studio has taken part in larger scale urban projects, landscape architecture and in the designing of small scale buildings as well. The company intends to profit from this approach, to create links between larger concepts and small details.
In recent years, PALATIUM Studio Ltd. has shown a dynamic development concerning the volume of its works. The greatest challenge has been the participation in the complex design process of the Budapest Metro 4 line stations. Most of the projects of the company were completed together with a growing group of cooperative partners and experts.
