The primary goal of the project is to renovate the end station building of the former horse tram observing the heritage protection rules, and to expand it with new features and content. Thus, the building serves as a home for the Local History Collection of the Hegyvidék District as well as as an event center and a catering industrial facility. The old idea could have been achieved that the end station built in 1885 should get rid of attachments built over the decades and should await visitors in their original state.

To this end, in the framework of the project, the heritage-protected part of the building has been renewed while at the same time landscaping, a modern part of the building, modern cooling / heating technology and other building elements have been implemented with the involvment of other resources in order to create a complex community space beyond the exhibitions of the Local History Collection.

During the implementation we took into consideration the demands of many different areas, so the preservation and reconstruction of the unique wooden roof structure could be renewed not only considering the recommendations of domestic experts but also taking into account the donor partner's views. The opinion of the population haven't only been requested in the planning phase but also during the development of the new cultural space's image, and all the functions of the building are barrier-free. With the help of the project it has become possible to create a modern exhibition space, in which touch-screen contents and tours with audioguide can be realized, and some parts of the exhibition are also accessible in Hungarian Sign Language (HSL).
