Studio Libeskind has won an international competition for the design of a mixed-use tower and complex in the heart of Vilnius, Lithuania. The 20,000 square meter building will feature offices, a luxury hotel, restaurants and public amenities and will be located at the intersection of the White Bridge, the Neris River and Old Town.

“The idea for the Downtown Tower-K18B is to create a 21st-century landmark for the city, while integrating the surrounding context to complement the urban fabric of the historic city,” said architect Daniel Libeskind. “The design will create a vibrant mixed-use complex that will invigorate and enliven the development of the neighborhood.”

The jagged tower takes inspiration from the light, sky and surrounding environment, and will rise out of a 6-story podium of spaces connected by a glass-enveloped galleria containing a restaurant, bar and retail in addition to the lobbies for the hotel and office towers.

The competition was organized by the Vilnius Municipality, Lithuanian Union of Architects and Lords LB Asset Management. Studio Libeskind is also currently designing the Vilnius Modern Art Centre as well as a sports and wellness centre, Vilnius Beacon.
