About object:

At the time, when a Shopping and Service Centre “Mega Plaza” was under construction in the seaport city, there was a rumour that the street of Herkus Mantas should become the main trading street of Klaipeda City.
The Service and Shopping Centre was established upon the reconstruction and enlargement of the building of the former girls’ institution with a school built in the second half of the nineteenth century. The construction line of the Herkus Mantas Street remained unchanged. In the course of the reconstruction, the red brick façade of the former historic building has been retained. In order to highlight the remained fragment of the cultural valuable, the newly constructed part was made entirely of glass with quiet metric division. There was formed a one-piece glass volume with no boundaries between walls and roof that sensitively “framed” the old, two-story, red-brick façade of significant architectural value.
In the three-storey building, the architects designed shops, restaurants, cafés, equipped escalators, a panoramic lift, and an underground parking-lot.
Only from the side of Herkus Mantas Street the building is perceived as an object of the frontal architecture that harmoniously intervenes by its scale into the existing development of the street.
