Emerald Residence

In Budapest, on Szervita Square, the former Downtown Telephone Exchange became the location of a new exclusive boutique hotel and residential complex in the city center, next to St. Anne’s Church. In addition to the special downtown location, homeowners can also use the hotel’s services, such as a 24-hour reception desk, breakfast from the hotel, housekeeping, laundry or valet parking.


Our primary design consideration was the historical connection of the buildings and the integrity of the layout of the square, reminiscent of old times.


The concept respects the importance of the church, builds on the past and sends the message that the old and the new, the past and the future are symbolically connected. When the building is completed, the surroundings of the church will be renewed. In 2017, the house won the of the Year award.


In addition to architecture and integrated design services, Óbuda Group also provided BREEAM Assessment for the project.
