A communal gastronomic space where the fusion of outdoor and indoor is facilitated by KAV glass portals

BABA Budapest is not merely a restaurant; it is a space where one can feel at home throughout the day. The main principles of design focused on the seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces and the creation of a genuine sense of community experience. We had the opportunity to discuss the BABA with its lead designer, Dóra Fónagy, while sitting at one of its tables, and during our conversation, we ourselves experienced why it provides a truly unique experience.

What were the main directions during the design of the place?

By connecting the outdoor terrace with the indoor space, we aimed to create this spacious communal area. We could incorporate the landscape architecture scale of the large green trees outside into the interior, thus creating a unified, natural environment. Therefore, from the very beginning, our landscape architect colleague, György Zsigmond, participated in the creation of the design and visual strategy.

As one walks by the restaurant, it almost beckons them inside…

We didn’t think in terms of enclosed spaces but rather aimed to create a large communal space with the terrace. The exterior and interior are entirely connected with glass portals. Treating the outdoor and indoor areas as a single unit, we placed the bar counter with communal tables in the center, making it the focal point of the restaurant. This is surrounded by the guests. The airy façade was a significant advantage. It was a fantastic opportunity. I am glad we were able to solve it with KAV.

Moreover, with a quite bold idea, anyone passing by the building can see what is happening in the kitchen…

This is precisely what reinforces this sense of community, with the show kitchen placed prominently on the corner of the façade. It’s a reinforcing design concept representing the gastronomic consciousness of the clients.

I understand you had to pay attention to many things due to heritage conservation considerations…

The large-scale architectural space provided us with an exceptional opportunity to realize the landscape architectural concept and formulate the communal space within this approach. We integrated the original building structural materials, either partially or entirely, into the interior space, such as the formwork for the ceiling and the original concrete floor. We wanted to preserve the original value system in this way, thus creating value. Nature fits into this structure. When we talk about nature, we think about the interplay of light and shadow. This is also present outdoors. Just think about the shade cast by the canopy of leaves. Since we are in a communal space, we placed great emphasis on offering different table heights to provide a space experience that everyone can enjoy.

How was this project different from the others?

In the sense that we really thought on a large scale. Spaces are usually more segmented. This is why one of the highlighted directions during the creation of the design and visual strategy was the landscape scale. For us, it represents a genuine dimension of self-identity. Words like space, geometry, and impulse come to mind. Therefore, we placed a mirror association at the end of the space. It has the same effect as when you take a walk in a forest… You sense that there is depth. And there are courageous elements, such as the openness of the kitchen or placing the white sink along the central axis. We elevated these elements, which are usually in the background, to the foreground. You see someone washing dishes, but you don’t find it intrusive; it legitimizes its role. It is through the combination of all these elements that the space becomes truly sincere.

Indeed. As I observed the openness of the place and its employees, I felt that I could confidently sit down to work a bit before the interview…

Yes, that’s why it can function as a real communal space. When you come to visit me, I share the space with you, and you feel like it’s your own. Often, we go to a restaurant as if it were an event. Here, you arrive as if you were visiting someone’s home. You feel like it’s your own. This is why it can be a kind of base.

How would you describe your collaboration with KAV?

The team was helpful and solution-oriented. We were very pleased that we could jointly develop these innovative objectives. We worked together in a constructive manner. We are proud of our shared and valuable reference.

Windows in the service of maximising the view
Frameless windows are favourite elements in houses built in modern and minimalistic styles, since, thanks to the nearly invisible frames, the external and internal spaces almost connect; in this way, nothing disturbs the view, and also natural light may flow into residential spaces through a greater surface.

Windows in the Design Process from an Architect’s Perspective
The question of when to engage window experts in the design process often arises. In this context, architect and head of the Archista architectural firm, László Kenyeres, shares his experiences. He believes that in today's architectural design process, windows and doors are a critical aspect because they represent one of the most complex parts of a building. Therefore, even those not well-versed in the world of windows may require external assistance to confidently complete an execution plan.

Special KAV doors and windows in Költő Kert
MTVA's innovation magazine program, Novum, made a report on the special glass elements and door and window solutions of the 5,000 square meter Költő Kert villa park, a building complex that is also considered special in Europe. Environmental awareness, innovation, organic architectural elements with transparent huge glass surfaces, and a way of thinking in which visual culture also plays a prominent role. One of the biggest challenges in the Költő Kert villa park was the special solutions that the KAV staff had to create at the junction of the raw concrete surface and the glass membrane. Károly Lovász highlighted in the report that KAV's engineers and employees had to solve many challenges during the planning and execution, whether it was thermal technology, sun protection, mechanical engineering, glass railing connections or waterproofing. The result is a simultaneously organic and high-tech building, which is considered exceptional in Hungary not only in its appearance, but also in its innovations.

The Application Possibilities of Steel Windows and Doors in Family Homes
With the changing architectural trends in residential buildings, larger glass surfaces are becoming increasingly prevalent in properties, while the size requirements of frame structures are decreasing. As a result, the use of steel windows and doors, which were previously mainly present in communal construction culture, is now being considered more frequently. We spoke with Mr. Károly Lovász, the Managing Director of KAV Hungária, to discuss when it is advisable to choose steel windows and doors instead of aluminum ones and what this product category has to offer.

Development by KAV of customised shades
The hot and dry summers experienced over the last few years due to climate change have made suitable shading solutions ever more important. However, the standard systems available on the market do not meet individual customer needs either in terms of movement mechanisms or their form. That is why KAV’s engineers are offering customised aluminium shades that reflect contemporary trends in building. Károly Lovász, Managing Director of KAV, provides an insight into these special solutions.

We build for the future rather than for today
Clear shapes, large glass surfaces, spacious interior spaces and creative use of materials – these are the main features of the most predominant architectural style of our era, minimalistic design, in which interest is outstanding in Hungary. However, the number of really well designed and built minimalistic family homes is relatively low. The property our engineers consider as one of the best designed ones our company has met in recent years was built in Budapest. During the project we paid increased attention to the design of large, liberally designed glass surfaces, essential for creating open spaces. We had a conversation with the developer of the house about what was needed to create this property.

The relationship between aluminium doors and windows and the façade
In parallel with the advent of the latest aluminium door and window solutions, including filigree case systems and large glass surfaces, façades have also been transformed in the family home market. In addition to functionality, design also plays a key role in more and more buildings. However, architects rarely involve professionals in the process of designing doors, windows and façades. According to Krisztián Vatai, executive director of Facade Design & Building, who is engaged in the design, construction and production of façades, a change of attitude and education is needed to change this.

THOSE ABOUT WHOM WHO NOBODY EVER TALKS, OR THE EMINENCES OF MANUFACTURING PREPARATION
KAV’s customers come into contact with several of our colleagues in the bidding, preparation and construction processes in the course of a job. These are our sales and estimation colleagues, our technical and manufacturing preparation engineers, our project engineers, and then our installation specialists. It is very rare that the end-user comes into contact with the manufacturing preparation engineers. In this article, we’d like to describe the work of these professionals in connection with the Continental Golf Club construction project.

This is where further thought-out versions of Schüco or Reynaers profile elements and completely unique door and window solutions are manufactured, designed and developed by KAV engineers. We talked to Albert Herbut, the head of KAV's Kisbér plant, about the production processes and the operation of the plant.
