Great year for the company, delivered three different type of projects
The Palace of Arts was developed, which houses the Ludwig Museum, the Festival Theatre and the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall. In the year of its opening, the Palace of Arts became the best cultural facility in Europe. Along with WestEnd, this was TriGranit’s second building to win “the Oscar of architecture”, the FIABCI award.
TriGranit demonstrated its intellectual and market power when, in parallel with the delivery of the Palace of Arts, contructed the Duna-Pest Residences in Budapest, a 300 unit luxury apartment complex on the bank of the Danube.
In November the Silesia City Center in Katowice was opened. The centre was built on the site of an old, long-closed mine and TriGranit raised a chapel alongside the building in memory of the miners. TriGranit was among the first companies to join the Green Building Programme, established by the European Commission, which awards eco-friendly buildings. Silesia City Center won this award in the year of its realisation. The site in the later years was further developed. TriGranit constructed the 1000-apartment complex, the Oak Terraces.
