About object:

The furniture centre is built in one of the wastelands that stretch in the depth of the territory. The trapezium rectangular volume extended along Dubysos Street is to a large extent determined by the land plot configuration. The lengthy laconic construction consists of two struck volumes. A deepened bottom part reduces visually the massive formation and also emphasizes the horizontalness and lightness of the volumetric composition. An easy turning-point at the intersection of volumes repeats the curve of the street and emphasizes the building’s dynamism.
The best overview of the building can be seen when driving along the Dubysa Street. The profiled tin volume “intervening” into the vitreous part of the building fixates the motion. The vitreous part is more static and the movement is slightly suspended here. In the façade oriented towards Taikos Avenue much more statics can be seen, but the expression still remains here – the motion is given a sense by a glass console hanging over the entrance from the Taikos Avenue.
Furniture showrooms, administrative part and a café are arranged in three floors. The forms of the building are “clean”, uncluttered with unnecessary elements. The motifs of motion in the tin coated façades are extended by the framed expressive window bars, which dimensions are repeated by the lines of clear glass windows in the volume of dark glass.
