The vocation of an architect has two facets: one is humanistic, driven by ideals, always rethinking the conditions of human existence, a creator who is anxious about the environment, and the other is a materialistic one who masters the world of technical, technological knowledge. I believe it is indispensable to strive for high-level cultivation of both of these qualities if we want to create good architecture. In today’s complex, constantly changing environment in which we work special empathy is required to carry out our architectural tasks at a high level of quality. I believe in the preservation and transfer of ideals and experience across generations, and that planning is a team effort: high-standard, creative architectural solutions to increasingly complex tasks can only be produced by a multi-faceted and open-minded circle of creative individuals. Our practice has been working in the spirit of this philosophy since 1997.

Telenor moved to its new office building with a floor space of nearly 12,000 square meters in summer 2009, ten years ago. That time, it was one of Europe’s largest environmentally conscious development projects designed by ZDA – Zoboki Design and Architecture.
Zoboki Design & Architecture is a creative community awarded several times Pro Architectura and FIABCI Prizes. In the past two decades, a number of our projects received the highest Hungarian and international recognitions.
