In the northern development of Baltijos Avenue, a string of furniture and car exhibition salons is arranged by the principle of spot building. The commercial building of SBA Baldai distinguishes in this context for its lightness and laconicity, notwithstanding the building area and its functions (trade and storage) should seem to programme a different architectural aesthetics.
Clear planned features of the building structure are arranged in different volumes. Only the front, single-storey part of the exhibition halls is perceptible from the side of the avenue. Beside it, further to the depth of the land plot, there is blocked a two-storey part of the building intended for warehouses and administrative premises that is different than the front volume by its height and colour. The main focus in this composition becomes a third volume element planing above both parts – a dynamic roof of light constructions signifying the main entrance to the building, as if attracting it closer to the Baltijos Avenue, perhaps even drawing in the flows of potential buyers into the building.
By this building the architects have shown that the beauty lies in simplicity: the attractive volume composition has been designed by elementary solutions and the façade frontality characteristic of the hangar type architecture has been avoided.
