Due to the excellent city centre location of Eiffel Square, all amenities can be reached within a few minutes. On Nyugati square on the opposite side of the Teréz Boulevard, there is a private medical centre, fitness centre, post office, Scala department store and a number of banks. Within a five minute walk of Eiffel Square is arguably the most successful shopping center on the Pest side of the City, West-End Shopping Center. Providing 400 shop units, from catering to fashion, shoes, cosmetics sports goods as well as a supermarket, restaurants and fast food, it provides enormous shopping variety. WestEnd also provides a five star Hilton Hotel and Conference Center and 14 screen Multiplex Cinema. Within a ten minute taxi ride, several 5-star hotels can be reached including the Boscolo, Grand Hotel, Four Seasons Gresham, Le Meridien, Kempinski, Marriott and Sofitel. Virtually every major cultural attraction is within the same distance including the Opera, Music Academy and many theatres.
The Eiffel Square building dominates the east side of the new square and faces the impressive façade of the Western Railway Station. The main façade of the building is designed to reflect the grandeur of the Station in a multi-faceted glass surface of 120 meters in length with, angled sections, breaking up the continuous surface. Changes in façade treatment identify the three main building entrances accessible from the 10m wide pedestrian walkway at ground level.
This walkway is above the restaurants which have terraces on the large open Square. The design of the Square is based on a microclimate study by the Szeged University forming a natural amphitheatre with a water cascade and feature pond at its north end and a central stage suitable for open air performances in summer and the use of a skating rink in winter. It will create an oasis of calm and culture in the middle of the City.
Internally, the design aims to provide a clean contemporary image with the use of the best materials in reception areas and lift lobbies. The layout of the offices is designed around the necessity to provide natural daylight to all permanent working spaces and at the same time limit direct glare and sunlight which can create an uncomfortable working environment. For this reason, the north and south façade of the building are completely different. Equally, the necessity to allow for both fully air conditioned and naturally ventilated space is designed into the building.. Finally and uniquely for such a central location, Eiffel Square can offer up to 3,150 m² of space on a single floor level, thus allowing larger companies to optimize internal communication.
