About object:

History of the object origin dates back to the Soviet times, when it was planned to build a residential area and a school there in Šalčininkai in about the ninetieth. Then an internal competition held in Urban Construction Design Institute was won by architects T. Paulauskas and R. Šipalienė. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the project remained unimplemented. Later, on purpose to commemorate the upcoming Millennium of Lithuania, it was returned to the idea of building a school. The school was built in earlier planned place, but within the area of unbuilt catchment on the outskirts of Šalčininkai.

The school is accessed through the inner courtyard. Classes are designed around public and recreational spaces of various forms: thus the possibilities to enable the development of children’s spatial imagination were made. School composition axis is the hall around which another spaces are formed: primary school, senior student classes, sports, etc. Unfortunately, due to the poor arsenal of finishing materials, rendering of structural shapes in interiors and facades clearly drawn in authors’ plans is somewhat reduced. Nevertheless, interior space of the building with ingenious consolidations of several floors constructed in the spirit of rationalism may be called as one of the strongest features of this project.
