University of Physical Education – Csörsz Street Block


Function: sports and educational institute
Year: 2017-2023
Gross floor area: 78 000 m²
Location: Budapest, Hungary

The Csörsz Street block of the University of Physical Education was completed in several phases. The area includes an internationally certified athletics track with a 400-metre, eight-lane running track, an artificial turf football pitch and two outdoor tennis courts. The campus includes a multi-purpose hall with 1,300 seats for handball, basketball, volleyball and gymnastics training and competition. The halls also have a lobby for university events, a 200-space indoor garage and a 700-square-metre gym. A special design element of the project was the special fence on the BAH node, called the colonnade. The colonnade is an undulating curved boundary motif with a grid dynamic, reflecting the circulation of the BAH hub. When the University of Physical Education was developing the sports fields, it was a priority to ensure that the campus facilities were suitable for the education of students with disabilities, thus supporting their preparation for the Paralympics. The BAH junction unit of the Buda Ambulance Station was renovated and significantly increased. With an increase of about 40% in floor space, the strategic ambulance base can now operate on 1800 square metres.
