About object:

The administration building of Elsis is one of the more vivid architectural examples of the first decade of independence in Klaipeda City.
The graceful rectangular shape configuration of the building is dictated by the land plot and the surrounding development. Some fragments of the dotted development quarters of the architecture typical of the beginning of 20th century have remained in the neighbourhood. The building harmoniously adapts to the existing environment by its scale and compact volume.
However, the architectural expression distinguishes in the evolvent of Minijos Street for its emphatic modernity. The asymmetric composition of the three-storey building is formed by an intersection of two geometrically strict volumes. The dashing character of the building is given a sense by clear, rational and coherent division of its façades into separate planes. The motif of motion that is especially vivid and highlighted in many works of this team of authors is “encoded” in this office building by the active track of Minijos Street. The direction of movement is “drawn” by the sloping shape of its main façade that is highlighted by volumetric strips signifying a cornice and the main entrance, as well as the oblique division of its vitreous plane. The motion and expression are given a sense by the static elements and colour solutions, as well as different finishing materials.
