UNIQA Vital Business CenterEdit profile
The new head office is located close to the previous one at the junction of two important traffic arteries in District XIII, Lehel út and Róbert Károly körút. The office building constructed by property developer Raiffeisen Evolution in 22 months, named the Vital Business Centre, has net usable floor space of 18,000 square metres. "That means it is of a similar size to the Austrian foreign ministry,".
The nine-storey building houses all of UNIQA’s divisions, while 40% of the usable floor space will be let to other companies. Companies renting the space so far include a pharmacy and a diagnostics centre.
While designing the building the architect was guided by the principle of transparency. "Transparency is one of the cornerstones of UNIQA’s business philosophy, and is conveyed in the Vital Business Centre by many glass surfaces and expansive rooms,"
Lighting up the night
A distinctive feature of the building is its LED facade, allowing colourful images and messages to be displayed on the street-facing side of the office building every evening. Although the idea is not new, it is unique in its scale: with some 80,000 pixels the Vital Business Centre currently boasts Europe’s largest LED facade.
