Tettye Park [1] 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 [2] 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 [3] to enter. This and other projects were recently devised to help rejuvenate many of Hungary’s most important cultural treasures.
