Balatonfüred Congress Center

The two-story monolithic building with a green roof seamlessly integrates into the hillside by No.71 main road, while large glass walls on the eastern side create an open ambiance for the congress center, hosting various events. Situated on the former Huray Street Market area, the congress center features an underground car park for 287 cars, partially accessible to the public. The limestone-clad facade conceals functions, maintaining a cohesive exterior.

The green roof provides access to the underground car park via a ramp, with pedestrian exits connecting to public spaces and the interior. The building comprises flexible spaces for events, conferences, and dining, including an entrance hall, exhibition area, conference hall-auditorium, and conference rooms. Guests enter the 650 m2 entrance hall, connected to the urban square, ideal for exhibitions. The hall leads to conference rooms accommodating up to 110 persons each, with nearby facilities. A staircase leads to the conference hall-auditorium, equipped with AV technology. The upper floor hosts four conference rooms, accessible via the main staircase or lift, which can be combined into a larger hall for up to 300 people. The catering kitchen on the ground floor serves receptions and dinner parties. The exterior features glass, stone, and plants, with louvres concealing mechanical openings, maintaining the building’s aesthetic integrity.
