MOL Headquarters is the new headquarters for the MOL Group, a global oil and gas company based in Hungary. The new building consolidates the company’s operations in one place, while creating an exciting new addition to the city’s skyline.
An integral part of the MOL Group’s sustainable vision for 2030, the building provides a blueprint for the office of the future. Its unique form integrates a 28-storey tower with a podium a single form to create a unified campus. The lower floors house restaurants, a gym, conference centre and a whole host of other facilities for staff, while the flexible offices spaces are on the upper levels.
Greenery travels through the heart of the building, from the central atrium to the rooftop, bringing nature closer to the workspace. It also acts as a social catalyst, creating spaces for collaboration, relaxation and inspiration. The offset service cores create large flexible areas that encourage collaborative patterns of working. Using cutting edge technology to control light levels, temperature and views these workspaces are finely calibrated to create the perfect working environment, a light filled inspirational space for people to work in.
Setting a new benchmark both for Budapest and Hungary, the design of the building makes the most of its urban context to drive a sustainable response. The MOL Headquarters seeks to preserve live-work relationships as part of the urban experience, where people are able to walk or cycle to work. All occupants have a direct connection to the external environment providing fresh air, daylight and views. The building utilises low and zero carbon energy sources, such as photovoltaics, and features rainwater harvesting and storage facilities.
