Cushman & Wakefield relocated its Budapest headquarters

As of the 1st of April 2018, Cushman & Wakefield, Hungary’s market leading real estate advisor has relocated its headquarters to the award winning, prestigious Váci1 office building in Budapest. The company is occupying 750 sq m premium office space, on the 4th floor of the state of the art property. The interior design planning and the fit-out works were carried out by DVM group and Project Management services were provided by Cushman & Wakefield.

Gergely Pados, International Partner, Head of Hungary at Cushman & Wakefield said: “It is no doubt that Váci1 is Budapest’s most iconic downtown office building. This UNESCO World Heritage listed building- designed by the Hungarian architect Ignác Alpár and constructed between 1911 and 1915- which has recently been restored to its original appearance, is ticking all the boxes of modern office standards hence is definitely the best solution for our continuously growing company. We couldn’t be more excited to kick off with our daily work at our modern, unique office area.”

The new office of Cushman & Wakefield Budapest elevates collaboration to a new level. The open space culture of the previous location which cultivated free information exchange and teamwork will now be strengthened with additional small meeting rooms, phone booths, a spacious kitchen and a large break-out area. The space is mainly characterised by elegant and modern design elements broken by loft-like and industrial details which in general give a very modern and trendy impression. When working on the concept we kept in mind the wishes and needs of our co-workers and put a lot of emphasis on creating a cosy interior and a pleasant working environment.

Tibor Massányi, Managing Partner of DVM group commented: “We were excited to create Cushman & Wakefield’s new, modern office space in the historic building of Váci 1. Open space fit-out came with certain challenges such as creating adequate acoustics, but we managed to develop innovative sound absorbing solutions that enrich the stylish interior. This office presents an internationally acknowledged high standard that could be proudly showcased anywhere in the world. By incorporating Cushman & Wakefied’s requirements and the latest trends in the design & build process, we hope to contribute to their long-term business goals. We welcome them to the building and wish their new home serves them well.”

Ádám Csikós, Partner, Head of Project Development Services at Cushman & Wakefield Budapest added: „Creating our own office after more than 100 successful projects still has its challenges. It makes you realise the importance of internal communication and helps to understand what harsh decisions the management needs to make to achieve an optimal solution. After months of preparation works, designing and construction we are finally happy to present our new “home” to our colleagues and partners as well. We would like it to be a showcase of not only a modern and liveable office but also as an example of our complex Project Management services which in many cases starts with Workplace strategy consultancy, many times includes interior design and always supports our clients to achieve their goals. We could also use this project to show our colleagues the process of an office fit out and relocation. I would like to add that our result oriented Project Management team excels not only in office projects but also in all other real estate sectors.”
