The context of the project site is the Gediminas Avenue (Lithuanian: Gedimino prospektas), the main street of Vilnius, where most of the governmental institutions of Lithuania are concentrated, including the government, parliament, Constitutional Court and ministries. It is also the place of cultural institutions such as Lithuanian National Drama. Our proposal deals with the extension of the Bank of ... for which we designed an additional floor on top of the protected building. The addition aims at complementing the elegant yet rigid language of the facade and give a new roof offering panoramic views over the old town of Vilnius.
