With deep regret have we learnt that dr. Attila Komjáthy, founder of Mérték Architectural Studio passed away last week.
Attila Komjáthy worked for twenty years at the National Monument Inspectorate as a designer, Head of Studio, from 1977 to 1984 as the Head of the Planning Department and from 1984 to 1987 as Deputy Director. In 1987, he founded Mérték Architectural Studio in collaboration with his former colleagues and students, which he led as Managing Director and Head of the Studio until 2008 and supported till 2011, the sales of his shares and foundation of the current ownership of the company, as a consultant.
Under the management of Attila Komjáthy, Mérték became the leading architecture company and market leader in the country. A number of large-scale monument renovations are linked to his name, such as the reconstruction of the Klotild Palace, the reconstruction of the Ybl Palace, or the restoration of Art 'Otel Budapest.
