V+L Studio was founded in 2000 by László Vincze, architect, and Helga László, art historian. From the beginning, we have had a number of outstanding architects on our team. Since the early years, Kornélia Parádi has been a constant collaborator and co-author of several completed projects.
László Vincze, DLA, architect, is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Architecture of Budapest University of Technology and Economics. In 1990 he co-founded the Axis Architecture Office with architects Tamás Nagy, Ferenc Salamin and Csaba Varga. In 1996, he was awarded the prestigious Ybl Prize in recognition of his work. He has been a member of the Széchenyi Academy of Arts and Literature since 2019.
Helga László is an art historian and art manager with an MA from Columbia University. After graduating she worked for several years in New York and London. Following her return to Hungary, she has worked as a coordinator of cultural projects, organised corporate art programmes and worked as a consultant for private and public collections. She regularly collaborates with local governments to create public sculpture projects and preserve art collections of local historical importance. Currently, her primary focus is on the creative use of artworks in architecture and interior design.
Architecture is a complex creative-engineering activity deeply rooted in culture, it is a comprehensive representation of the technical and social conditions of a given period. It is the architect’s responsibility both to respect eco-friendly principles and to use modern architectural tools achieving a balance between the two. It is increasingly important to preserve and protect our architectural heritage as well as the work of prominent Hungarian architects.
Technological progress is putting new tools in the hands of architects, and the changing social attitudes are creating new demands. Architecture that is thoughtful, financially prudent, and socially committed has become ever more valuable. The value comes not from style but from innovation, modernity and the pure ethics of the building process.
