Tettye Park is one of Hungary’s most revered historical sites and now visitors will be able to experience the site with a new and inventive Corten addition. After stabilizing the site, the design firm added the L-shaped weathering steel lookout point which is reached via an inner staircase, in addition to a low-level stage and open air theater.

Small Corten blocks scattered throughout the site are used as seating and small holes punched into the steel permit soft daylight to enter. This and other projects were recently devised to help rejuvenate many of Hungary’s most important cultural treasures.
