The military troops body in the North Town was founded already in the 19th century. When the Soviet troops abandoned Lithuania, the Vilnius City Municipality decided to implement a multifunctional area, in which commerce would prevail on the said 53 ha territory, easily accessible from the city centre.
The furniture and interior centre Domus Galerija stands out of the nearby large supermarkets with its rational elegance. The horizontal contour of the rectangular glass building along P. Luksio street is supplemented by a four-storey superstructure, decorated with integral glass “skin”, which became a dominant of the North Town, reminiscent of a submarine, according to its authors.
The lower – oblong part of the building is used for trade, it houses several tenths of small furniture and interior elements shops. The upper part, of the shape of a triangle with rounded angles, is used for offices.
The original shape of the building helps to easily locate the object, which is useful to both customers and tenants. The light and plastic architecture of Domus Galerija raised the bar for the quality of architecture of future buildings on the territory.
