Project Hódmezővásárhely Public Library Architecture Competition, Honorable Mention
Architect Tímea Deichler, Daniel Jakab
The goal of the competition was to design a new town library for Hódmezővásárhely. The site of the design is on the main square of the town, on the south side of Kossuth square, neighbouring the old church. There are essentially two forms of building placement types in the town centre. On one hand, the building development is in unbroken rows, where the façades on the street open with small gates to courtyards; on the other hand, detached buildings are characteristic of the area. We are calculating with two main arrival directions; from the tram stop of Andrássy street, and by the corner of the plot, from Kossuth square or Rapcsák András street. The walls of the church are partly standing; we have aligned the designed building complex along the demolished north wall to restore the more closed off garden of the church, creating a coherent, calm atmosphere.
