One of the main central part of Vilnius visual identity characteristics – the river valley and the city center surrounded by the green slopes. This influenced the direction of the design concept of the proposal, which aims to highlight the relationship between the central part of Vilnius, as the current (still remaining) a natural casing. The design concept of the proposal – “the mountain” (light house).
The project is based on the fundamental solutions of the following three main postulates of the two determines the complex spatial structure, and one – the functional and technical logic. Their structure and led to the principle idea – “the mountain”.
Existing natural elements of the frame – the green hills and slopes are one of the main visual identification features of Vilnius city. To highlight this feature the proposed building configuration to mount and the logic of the morphological features of the visual analogy. This reflects the requirement (1) – the mount of the green – representing the natural environment of the city center.
The second postulate (2) – The building of public space – urban public space system. Given the existing system of public spaces contiguous (with the existing parks, the main pedestrian routes and streets and squares) designing proposal provides for a building with a green roof, which would be used as an urban public space for recreation and valuable panoramas review. In addition to this public space is formed by the logic continues to the park and other public spaces scheme (Park marriages in the House, Mount Tauro, Lukiskiu Square, to Mr. Cvirkos It has a monument, a link to Vingis park). In view of the expected functions of the abundance of public buildings and uses, the public spaces of such systems is the need of local importance.
The third postulate (3) – ecosofia. Environmentally-friendly architectural technology solution development, covering a number of ecological concepts (space orientation, structure and material of facade, solar energy utilization, air traffic management, geothermal energy, the maximum green space, transport, elimination, etc.
