The inner courtyard program in Palota Quarter aimed to transform the inner courtyards of houses into community places with the active participation of the residents. During the programme – set within the Budapest Downtown of Europe Programme - two inner courtyards were renewed.

One in 10 Szentkirályi Street (2008) and another in 1 Horánszky Street (2010). Thanks to the transformation these previously inactive spaces, theyhave become lively ones where inhabitants meet each other and organize special events that sweeten the everyday life in the city.
