About object:

Since the nineteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century, an area of utilities was formed along the current Liepu Street. By now, in this territory, the buildings of a gas factory, a historic watering-place of Klaipeda City and the complexes of old slaughterhouse – the real cultural valuables have remained. Following up with the industrial moods of the quarter, a development gap in the northern part of the quarter was filled with the building of the shopping centre Liepa.
Valuable adjacencies have been chosen as a starting point for the architectural interpretation, as well as a link with the surrounding remained industrial architecture of the beginning of the twentieth century has been sought for. A simple constructive formation has been chosen for the building of the shopping centre. A one-piece volume of the commercial building is divided into several segments creating the individual parts that give the impression of the factories and workshop conglomerate perfectly corresponding to the context. The red brick masonry typical of Klaipeda City is used for the façade decoration.
This pronounced local identity is encoded based on the logic specific to the construction of industrial quarters by varying shapes, materials, colour tones allied to the remained ensembles of the historic buildings.
