In the framework of the Healthy Budapest Programme, our design tasks could be divided into three project elements: designing the reconstruction of the existing Lukács Spa and Swimming Pool monumental façade and the improvement of the building parts connected to the National Institute of Rheumatology and Physiotherapy (ORFI), designing the improvement of the Esplanade building and the construction of a new hospital building. The aim of the development is to modernise the existing ORFI buildings and to create a new hospital with modern requirements.

The new hospital building will include a day hospital function, a day surgery block, a musculoskeletal knowledge centre, a laboratory for clinical medical tests, a research institute to demonstrate the effectiveness of our medicinal waters, and new inpatient wards. In addition there is a large back garden with green areas and landscaping, a spa and pool area, a conference centre, terraces and an underground car park.
