The Club Aliga Project is a 47 hectare masterplan on the north eastern shore of Lake Balaton, 100 km south west of the Hungarian capital, Budapest.
The site is of historical cultural importance, outstanding natural beauty and was the former summer retreat of the Hungarian Communist Party. The site was purchased from the Hungarian State by a joint venture company with the intention that it would become a destination resort community.
RMJM's commission resulted from winning submission in competition with leading international architectural practices.
Nathan worked in close collaboration with RMJM's London based project team to established the site wide principles. This also included the facilitation of presentations and workshops with the client and project team in Hungary.
Nathan undertook in-depth analysis of the site in conjunction with award winning landscape architects Gustafson Porter. This identified key features of the site including; ﬂora, fauna, ecology, geology, local and regional cultural features. These elements were incorporated into the design proposals creating a rich sense of place.
