Only just starting to establish branches in Lithuania the then Vilnius Bank (currently, AB SEB Bank) observed a unique policy of the architectural expression.
A building the Bank’s branch in Kedainiai was reconstructed of a typical cinema building build in the Soviet period, which had lost its original purpose after the restoration of Independence and did not have any clear new one for a long time. The architects G.Natkevicius, R.Adomaitis, J.Syvokiene, A.Asauskas followed the theme dictated by their customer – they created a building symbolising open and transparent Bank’s policy, an openness of which had also to encourage people make visits in it.
The most expressive architectural element of the building is a supine black roof console of 10 meters framed by the white “columns” from both sides, where the spaces of communication and services are located.
The interior plan is rational: the departments performing a public function, such as customer service, tills, etc. are situated on the ground floor; the premises intended for the bank’s employees, a meeting hall, etc. are on the first floor – in the mezzanines surrounding a spacious lobby.
The Bank’s Branch with its unique building constructed in Kedainiai has decorated the town’s centre – a central square of the town with a building of Kedainiai District Municipality next to it.
