Our specialization in the Architéma Ltd. is the general design, prime contractor and technical inspection. We have an expert and prepared team for any request of every building type. Our clients can find the most reliable partner if they looking for a feasible, durable and long standing buildings.
For us, architects the most important thing in the world is creation. Our thoughts breed forms, spaces and buildings which then breed new thoughts in others. We believe our work creates more than structures. Most of the time, we realize dreams. We give primary importance to the realization of our clients’ dreams in the best possible quality. In our opinion, real value is quality itself.
Space is the luxury of our times. The quality of the space in which we live, work and improve our minds shapes our character fundamentally. As architects, we shape space, but then that space shapes us. This is what makes us think that quality architecture is always justified.
The realization of a plan for most people is an immense challenge. We endeavour to create reality from dreams by using the experience and expertise we gain while designing and constructing.
Very few architectural offices exist today which not only design but also construct the buildings they planned every detail of. The buildings thus created reflect the consistent way of thinking we represent.
Both planning and construction are team work. We appreciate our partners’ work and respect their opinions and expertise. Constant consultation with the creative master craftsmen we selected throughout the years ensures the emergence of quality already in the planning phase.
Lajos Kuknyó was born in Miskolc. He studied architecture at the University Of Engineering And Technology in Budapest from 1990 until 1995 and at Kungl Tekniska Högskolan (Stockholm, Sweden) in 1996 with a scholarship and earned his degree in 1997.
During his university years he worked for the Pomsár & Co. architectural office and collaborated with Zakarias Toivio at Architéma Arkitektkontor in Sweden. He participated in the design process of the IBM Headquarters built near the Lágymányos bridgehead and of the West-End Business Centre erected on Váci street. He was invited to Canada in 1998, where he spent a brief but productive designing period in Calgary at Arc Design, collaborating on a conceptual design to rebuild a 22-storey hotel. Between 1999 and 2001 he was head of the design department at Binder joint-stock company, where he designed high quality buildings for the 2nd district of Budapest.
Since 2001 he has been a general architect at his own office Architéma Ltd, which he founded in 1996. In 2006 he was qualified as a senior architect. Through his office he takes part in various projects. When designing, he aims perfection and never lets the quality of his work be limited by the functions of buildings. Designing dwelling houses, buildings for medical purposes and office buildings are at the forefront of his experience. In 2006 he was a founding member of the Sinus Architects Studio, which came into existence as a result of close collaboration between architectural offices working at high standards.
Under the leadership of Lajos Kuknyó, Architéma Ltd has been building exclusive dwelling houses, villas and smaller apartment blocks since 2004. Pursuing both design and construction has helped the office raise the standard of its work. Technical experience is incorporated into planning, which continuously improves the quality of new buildings.
