Walking through the ashes of time, flaring up the dust that once was. Being aware of the energetic life that once embraced this place. A passion for abandoned places.

That moment when I feel the warmth of the sun embrace me, even on the coldest winter days. Walking towards this ‘new’ beauty which was lost and forgotten in time. This doesn’t just warm up my body, it warms up my mind. It gives me a certain sensation which is incomprehensible.

A warm welcome to my website!

“When she Sings” is an ode to one of the most beautiful personalities I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I've rarely met a lady with such a soft, friendly and sincere personality as Nvard. Nvard took us to this temple, this very specific place. While I was busy working, she started singing beautifully. Can you imagine what her voice sounded like in this room? She sang in a universal language that made goosebumps run all over my body.

Encounter a unique glimpse into the world of the abandoned. A world where time stood still, where dust settled down, yet the stories remained. Feel the past and experience it in this artwork.

control the power

The Power Station, the largest electrical generation plant in the world after its construction in 1912. The Power Station was the pinnacle of technological progress in Europe. Yet its legacy may ultimately be defined more by its intricate Art Deco design than by its groundbreaking technology. Designed and built by architects with a vision (The “plant” was finished in 1914) that went beyond mere industrial functionality, the historic parts of the power plant are safeguarded by Hungarian legislation. Preventing demolition, though not ensuring regular preservation. 

The original part of the power plant supplied Budapest with electricity until 2007, after which it passed into private ownership.

One of the "pillars" of this great location is the glass Art Deco roof, truly beautiful to see. The factory is abandoned but closely guarded. For me, the control room is an absolute holy grail to visit. A true industrial gem.
