”B” class office building located at industrial district of Vilnius. With retail premises on the ground floor and six floors of administrational space above it has dedicated underground parking for occupiers and front parking for visitors.
Difficult site boundaries made clients requirements a challenge to design sleek building, appropriate for the budget and area as well.
All the restrains pointed towards simple plan, function, material and servicing solutions. Thus, functional elements had to be transformed in to design elements. Narrow volume dominates panorama with its proportions and “clear” feel on a busy junction corner. Secondary glass structure enhances impression and acts as a sound barrier. Emergency staircase structure refers to industrial background and adds detail to minimalistic composition.
Underground parking planed for the future to be able accommodate double-hight parking mechanisms. Whole structure is cast in place concrete. Curtain wall and spider system for exterior glazing. Typical industrial floor finish with supported grid ceiling system for cost efficiency. External steel stairs for easy maintenance and longevity.
