Casiopea Group Kft appeared on the Hungarian market in 2001. The company provides architectural services both for residential and commercial projects in Eastern and Central Europe. Initially, it had been devoted to two architects, but it quickly became one of the largest Hungarian architectural companies. Nowadays an experienced international team of twenty-five architects work on Casiopea Group Kft.
Casiopea dates back to 1998, when two of its current owners, Michael Israeli and Yael Argaman, created their own company after long years of the work in design offices in Israel. The list of committed works includes the Ministry of Justice in Jerusalem, an office complex in the campus of Rishon LeZion, schools, synagogues and gyms.
The architects decided to expand their business opportunities in real estate to Central Europe and moved their companies in 2001 to Budapest, Hungary. The Hungarian architect Gyula Lazar joined them there in 2002.
It is important for companies to find "the Spirit of the Place" and form the potential in accordance with it without choosing stereotypical styles of architecture. Employees of Casiopea try treating each architectural work without prejudice.
