Restoration of the horse tram terminus building in Zugliget to preserve the built heritage and to utilize it as a sustainable cultural-community place
Summary of project results
The primary goal of the project was to renovate the end station building of the former horse tram taking into consideration the heritage protection rules, and to expand it with new features and content. Thus, among the 4 new community functions the building serves as a home for the Local History Collection of the Hegyvidék District as well as as an event centre and a catering industrial facility. To this end, in the framework of the project, 817,60 sqms of the heritage-protected building were renewed while at the same time landscaping, a modern part of the building, modern cooling / heating technology and other building elements were implemented with the involvement of other resources in order to create a complex community space beyond the exhibitions of the Local History Collection. During the implementation, they took into consideration the demands of many different areas, so the preservation and reconstruction of the unique wooden roof structure could be renewed not only considering the recommendations of domestic experts but also taking into account the donor partner's views. The opinion of the population was requested not only in the planning phase but also during the development of the new cultural space's image, and all the functions of the building can be accessed by disabled. By implementing the project it has become possible to create a modern exhibition space in which touch-screen contents and tours with audio-guide can be realized, and some parts of the exhibition are also accessible in Hungarian Sign Language.
They have established a good relationship with the domestic and donor partners, and regular project discussions have taken place. The preservation and reconstruction of the unique wooden roof structure could be renewed not only considering the recommendations of domestic experts but also taking into account Intbau Scandinavia as donor project partner's views.
