That is the reconstruction of a formerly famous restaurant – canteen called “Vasara” in Palanga (the author of the original Project is arch. A.Eigirdas, 1967). This is a very harmonious and contextual building, which seems to rehearse the bend of the stream Ronžė. Therefore, the newly appeared solutions seek to preserve, „touch“and „accompany“when creating a new coherence. The plastic volume of the ground floor is preserved; the planted and exploitable roof is installed above it, the „green“inner yard is created. The glazed restaurant volume with the cylindrical shape is preserved as the dominant of the ensemble. The arched construction, which signalized the restaurant, and the function of this volume also remain unchanged. The new corps of the habitable premises are designed as they were in the second plan, in the depth of the yard. They are like separate volumes, rehearsing the clearances of the surrounding villas by their occupied area. Their curved, glazed planes respectfully recede and assist to the composition of the building. At the same time it is the allusion to the waves of the Baltic Sea. The thematic of plastic and movement is developed. Seeking the preservation of quiet and park mood, the priority is given to the pedestrian while cars are „hidden“in the redesigned underground parking.
