The new rescue center near Silas Bridge in Vilnius is one of the rare cases when the building is both expressive and courteous in respect of the surroundings. The building houses two services: Emergency Response Center (ERC) and fire and rescue center (FRC). The latter is in the lower part of the building that stretches out along Neris River; farther – at the Neris River – the boathouse is built. The upper part – the dominant of the complex – is “turned” vertically to the lower part. ERC is in it.
The architects aptly made use of the features of the landscape: uneven terrain made it possible to “bury” part of the building underground, to green its roof. This meadow does not prevent the neighbours from seeing the river from the bordering buildings. The building widely overlooks the picturesque panoramas of surroundings, especially on the glass walls of the façade facing the river side. The architecture of the object is created with the help of laconic forms, the rhythmic of wide glass walls, strict lines, and window cracks giving its sound.
Attention to the surroundings and the human helped the architects to design a building open to the surroundings that demonstrates harmonious relationship with the nature unobtrusively.
