Atrium House: Breaking Through Traditional Architecture
Introducing Atrium House, an impressive two-story home located in the capital of Hungary, Budapest. Tamás Szén Molnár, a renowned designer, created a contemporary masterpiece in 2022 with a combination of light and clean spaces.
The team had to make significant architectural changes to make the building lighter, such as breaking through the ceiling between the two floors to create an imposing atrium in the middle, featuring a custom-made lighting system. In order to accommodate the client’s lifestyle, a room was created on the same floor as the parents’ suite, making it possible for the children to have separate rooms in the future.
About Atrium House
Creating a Bright and Functional Home
To create an inviting, bright home, the design team needed to make some significant changes to the labyrinthine spaces of the existing structure. They discussed the details of the client’s lifestyle and the changes they wanted to make with the family.
Creating a Spacious and Practical Home
An important priority for the family was that their children, who are young now, would have a room on the same floor as the parents’ suite. The design team also had to consider a future where the children could have separate rooms and the parents could move to another floor.
Introducing a Custom Lighting System
To make the building lighter, the team broke through the ceiling between the two floors to create an imposing atrium in the middle. Here, they hung a custom-made lighting system, adding to the aesthetic and functionality of the home.
