ABOUT

Hi,

my name is Eszter Kallai. I’ve finished my studies as architectural engineer in 2012. Now , I’m working with 3D modelling software, Cinema 4D, on a daily basis.
I have advanced knowledge on the field of BIM workflow, especially architectural 3D modelling with ArchiCAD and Vectorworks.
Apart from my full-time job, I’m working on interior design projects.
Currently, I have a small apartment renovation which is under construction.
It will be completed according to my plans and instructions in 2017 Q1. Previously, I gained experience on this field when I designed the renovation plans of a holiday home on Raday street, Budapest in 2010.
I was involved also in the interior design process of a newly built apartment block in Buda, Hungary in 2012.

I will present several projects on this website by focusing on the visualization work I do for the interiors I’m working on.

Welcome and enjoy browsing!

This video is about my first interior design project.
Project: Retrofit project – Budapest, Raday street Year: 2011
Area: 44 m2
Concept: The original layout of this apartment consisted of one main room, entrance hall, a toilet and a kitchen with bathtub. There was no separate bathroom. After more than 20 years of living in the flat, the previous tenant has left it without any renovation or maintenance. The extremely high ceiling height (4.60 m) is a big advantage in this ground floor property. I designed a loft in the main room which divides the space into a living room downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. Bathroom is also upstairs and adjacent to the bedroom. The loft structure and stairs have a robust steel structure which was installed and designed according to the structural engineer’s instructions. Regarding the new layout, loft and stairs design: we successfully found the balance between the structural requirements, aesthetics and the client’s needs. The ‘S’ shaped edge was a unique idea which made the railing quite difficult to install. .
The new materials used for the floors, tiles and furnitures are all in harmony and result to a homey atmosphere with timeless modern look. Also the quality of the materials were extremely important for the owner. For example, the stair treads are made of walnut wood. The material came from the owner’s grand parents where the walnut tree was cut a few years ago and was waiting for the right place to be built in. Neutral and beige colors are dominant in this interior. This sophisticated design is very appreciated by the owner and tenants.
