The everyday living need not necessarily be mundane, tedious or ‘routine’. When one’s very own personal dwelling is beyond the ordinary, life can definitely be more than cyclical and monotonous. Located in Danube, right in the heart of Budapest, Margeza is one such apartment that is full of life and brilliance, built by Belgian couple’s Margeza Design Studio that designs and builds ‘liveable’ spaces as a joyful, creative process.
Margeza Design Studio’s unique apartment SZABO ILONKA UTCA in Danube, Budapest, has the notorious capacity to pleasingly charm not just those who are living under its roof, but also the viewers admiring it from outside, as it employs the sheer power of its very charismatic nature, vibrancy and flamboyant character.
The living space is more than just a fitting abode of interiors that is soothing to the eye and the mind, and so also does it serve as a deserving platform to some of the most extraordinary sights in the city—something that it harbours in abundance, amongst the rather vast bounty of treats that it has in store to generously offer its residents. As if that wasn’t enough, one also gets more than just a taste of the icing on the cake — a rather clear view of one of the most beautiful buildings, the architectural spectacle of the Parliament.
Following a complete and thorough renovation, the place was made to be special with unique furniture and carpets that were designed specifically keeping the apartment in mind. The tiniest of aspects were acknowledged and paid attention to, leaving nothing behind while addressing each and every nook and corner, including the most minute of details. Testimony to this would prove to be the ‘living green wall’, a feature that is symbolic of the apartment’s liveliness and zest.
Very naturally, the characteristics of Margeza can be found everywhere: joyful, energy-filled colours that provide or create an atmosphere of happiness. On the Budapest-shaped carpet, a small red dot shows the location of the apartment, while the giant window of the living room—like an open cinema—shows the ever-changing face of the city. Likewise, the entire apartment is flooded with light. Featuring a living room; two bedrooms and an additional study, the apartment is 110 sqm (1,184 sq ft) on two levels. Yet, if one yearns for or desires going into unbounded space, one can go on to the terrace and glance away at the boats serenely sailing on the Danube. From the limited to the unlimited, Margeza has it all.
