The Palm House of the Széchenyi Bath aims to be a multifunctional space that serves recreational activities during the daytime and transforms into an event space during the evening time. Hence the lush plantation that can be found in the palm house is partly lifted high into the air, and is partly planted in planters on wheels. The so called cloud elements create the planters for the plants lifted in the air. These unique elements, tied to the structure of the building, were designed especially for this event space. Epiphyte plants take up the humidity of the place. Light effects make the elements seem like floating clouds.
