A new fire station building built in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, rising on the west bank of the river Neris, near the busy traffic street and a bridge. Architecture office L&G projects had to settle the building into the difficult but sensitive surroundings.

Total area of a project 4000,0 m². Building consists of 2 parts: emergency response center  (ERC) and a fire station. In the lower part, stretched along the river,are located premises of a fire station and a garage of the trucks. In the upper part,which is a dominant point in the architecture and is stretched along the street, are located premises of ERC. However, both these services do not intersect each other. Work in these structures is hard, tight and closed from the public, therefore architects had a dual task between openness and closure.

Moreover, the human factor was a basic when thinking about structure and architecture. Building is constructed open to its surroundings and demonstrates close connection. Walls of glass with a view to the river helps to relax and to calm. The dug lower part of the building with the grass roof creates and illusion of the hill. Thus other buildings do not lose the connection with the river. The grass roof is a space for a recreation, which is protected form the noise by the upper part.

Finish of a facade is coated with hanging tiles Argeto. A dark colour blends the building with the surroundings. A white background of a neighboring volumes becomes a composionally good frame  for a fire station to live its independent, open and interesting life.

Third picture is taken with wide lens and no line straightening in postproduction? It looks like all pictures are simple raw shots, definitely not a final product.

brilliant work!

Ruta · June 28, 2012

Really nice project in reality. However plans and photography could be better. Looks boring and unprofessional.
