The 'Look-out Tower at Galyatető' is an Architizer A+ Awards Popular Choice Winner
NARTARCHITECTS of Hungary have won the prestigious Architizer A+ Award for their innovative renovation of a look-out tower in Galyatető, Hungary. The ARCHICAD-designed project is located in the center of the 1100-km long "Blue" national tourist route, which passes through Northern Hungary. The look-out tower is an innovative and contextual impact on Galyatető that will enhance the experience of the second highest peak of the Mátra mountain's location and nature. It is a found object made of stone. The materials used are quite puritan; the harmony of the extant stone quarry and exposed concrete prevails in the building's reconstruction and extension. Together the old and new materials create a contemporary built environment.
