The Mother and Child Clinic of Šiauliai City is one of the first health care building development projects of the period after the restoration of Lithuanian independence. Although the designing was started as far back as in 1992, the realization of ambitious goals – to integrate an old Children Hospital with two newly projected pavilions – protracted until 2009. The new main entrance is emphasized by a round tower-shaped volume, integrated at the intersection of the new pavilions. The impression of light and levity is strengthened by a skylight installed in a roof of this volume that illuminates the walls decorated with warm colours. The building’s lobbies guide to two different purpose units. In a plastic-shaped volume, there are projected surgery premises and in the most rounded part of this pavilion, there are arc-arranged surgeries and wards of intensive therapy. Another pavilion – strictly geometrically shaped – that is connected with the old Children Hospital is intended solely to wards. The architectural expression of the building is especially restrained and monumental. Red brick masonry is clarified by a white angel sculpture alighted at the approaches of the main entrance.
