Sea-eye Clinic

The X.district Szárnyas utca housing estate, built between 1955-60 (designed by architects Emil Zöldy, Tibor Csordás, István Árkai, and Árpád Mester), has seen recent real estate development and an increase in population. Consequently, there arose a need to expand the GP service in the area. The Municipality of District X identified a vacant property within one of the iconic condominium buildings for this purpose.

Originally housing the “Sea-eye café”, the circular part of the building later served as a bakery and then as a foundation school. To accommodate the new clinics, three separate entrances were required, distinct from the condominium entrance. The circular building now houses clinics for both healthy and sick children, while the condominium part serves as the adult clinic.

Inside the circular building, doctor’s offices are arranged in box-shaped rooms, rotated relative to each other, with metal mesh cladding on the exterior, upon which wild grapes grow. Additionally, the facade of the building has been renovated, and the public space between the building and Üllői road has been revitalized.
