Johannes Torpe Studios unveils the first visuals from the Buda Resort; a luxury spa resort project located in the Visegrad Hills of Hungary and inspired by the spiritual symbolism of its setting; the ‘Heart Chakra of The Earth’.
An unfinished and derelict concrete construction lying dormant since the early 2000s and built on an old stone quarry is reimagined by Johannes Torpe Studios around its unique location into a luxury spa and wellness resort concept with 210-rooms.
The design draws inspiration from its unique and sacred setting by the hill of Dobogo- ko, which in Hungarian means “beating stone”, and is believed to be the heart chakra of the earth due to the electromagnetic properties of the land.
The project blends the functionality of a modern spa hotel with conference and event facilities. The studio’s vision was to develop a holistic retreat which fostered a greater sense of togetherness between humankind and the therapeutic qualities of nature.
