The Most Eco-Friendly Building in Vilnius to improve Quality of Life
The K29 business center is a major, new landmark in Vilnius that was to improve quality of life for 1250 workers in a healthy working environment – setting the standards for a healthy and attractive workplace in Lithuania. K29 is built from all natural and mostly local, eco-friendly materials making it the most eco-friendly building in Lithuania to date. The building is situated on Konstitucijos Prospektas (Constitution Avenue) and has created a new destination in Vilnius with a strong iconic expression in the skyline.

Blending in to the Urban Scale
The building is placed in the central business district of Vilnius – and creates a transition area between a large park area to the north of Vilnius and the city’s international business area in the east. It’s open and inviting to the surroundings and integrates the use of a new attractive park in the dynamic development area of Vilnius. K29 was designed to blend into the urban scale of the area and the surrounding landscape and is placed in the area between public green spaces and the cluster of high-rise buildings along Konstitucijos avenue 29.

Site Plan

The Oval Shape
The architectural concept is the iconic oval shaped atrium building, to end the densely built area along Constitution Avenue. The oval shape of the building with the central atrium and a sloping roof gives optimal conditions for daylight for all users. Because of the sloping roof, light flows in to the atrium most of the day – and users placed close to the windows of the inner atrium can look beyond the atrium itself having visual contact with the cityscape. The building thus ensures maximum wellbeing and daylight access having no dark areas.

The lighting design is with the newest and most energy efficient components and the façade is an advanced double skin building with energy glass and automated solar control system. K29 has a hybrid ventilation and cooling system with natural ventilation of office spaces with openable windows in the inner façade and through the atrium skylight.
