ConvergenCE office in the repositioned ZenGarden

One of Hungary’s most successful boutique property development, investment and asset management companies, ConvergenCE, is relocating to ZenGarden Office Building. After a €2.5 million refurbishment, the 9,500 square meter building has earned the prestigious BREEAM environmental certification. The management hired BuildEXT, an established interior design studio, to plan the office space..

Founded in 2004, ConvergenCE boasts a nearly two-decade success story, built on partnerships driven by mutual interests and commitment to continuous improvement. With vast experience as an investor and developer, they have already revitalized over 200,000 square meters of office, commercial, and industrial properties.

After acquiring and renovating the CBC office building in 2019, it has been transformed with a new name and image. The revamped ZenGarden prioritizes indoor gardens, energy efficiency, and tenant-focused design. The distinctive rock garden, adorned with bamboo, diverse plants and trees, adds a touch of uniqueness. Additionally, amenities like the pétanque court, shaded terrace with sun sails and lounge areas provide extra spaces for relaxation and rejuvenation. BuildEXT was commissioned to design the interior of the common spaces in the office building redevelopment project. Read more about the project, which also included building digitalization.

A ZenGarden irodaház hangulatos belső udvara,  azegyedi hangulatú sziklakert mellett bambuszsövény és különböző növények, fák díszítik a kertet. A pétanque pálya, a napvitorlákkal árnyékolt terasz és a lounge részek pedig plusz feltöltődésre kínálnak lehetőséget.

Csaba Zeley, Managing Director of ConvergenCE, shared the reasoning behind the move, stating, “Having our own office in a building that we operate has always been crucial to us.He emphasized the renewed ZenGarden Office Building’s unparalleled environment, offering optimal working conditions and utmost comfort for their employees. “Customer satisfaction remains a top priority and the convenient accessibility from all parts of the city, sports facilities, nearby service providers and diverse amenities empower them to continue delivering the best services to their trusted clients.” Easy access from all parts of the city, sports facilities, the proximity of service providers and the versatility of the building give us all we need to continue providing the best possible service to those who place their trust in us.

We have very good cooperation, so we were delighted when Dóra Papp-Vas asked BuildEXT to design the ConvergenCE office. The panoramic view over the city is an excellent feature of the office space, which we tried to highlight in the design of the new office. Among other design elements, we created separated spaces with glass walls, so we solved the functional challenges and the view at the same time as a highlight of the interior space.”– said Andrea Baktay, Head of Studio, Master of Architecture, Head of Interior Design.
