In the outskirts of Kőszeg, there is a felt factory. The factory was built in 1898, and we wanted to honor it, as a part of our industrial heritage, by rethinking its function. Felt production has lost its markets in the last few years and the factory has fallen into slow but sure decay. Nowadays, the yearly income of the factory is around 100 million HUF, an amount that barely covers its expenses. The present owner of the factory intends to sell it.
A comprehensive development strategy was presented to the West-Pannon Development Agency for further use. Brand new business model and new website was developed by the felt factory inspired by the outcome of HOLIS summer university teamwork. An almost disappeared cultural and industrial heritage gained a second chance.
