Banknote Office Center, Lithuania

From series “Top 16 Most Amazing Buildings of the Planet”
Year: 2008.

During a walk through distant Kaunas district one can see the original building, whose facade reminiscent of the huge banknote 1 000 Lit. Such banknotes were circulated in Lithuania in the first half of the 20th century. This original 20-storey building, completed in 2008, is considered the best office in the city. Here are the offices of the largest and leading companies. The office in the center 'Banknotes' is an honor for many entrepreneurs.

Banknote Office Center, Lithuania The picture of the old banknotes was not chosen by chance for façade design. The semblance is intended to remind modern entrepreneurs of the traditions of the previous years, the independence of the country and the advantages of its economy. The building looks not only very impressive, but also elegant. In the evening the facade of the office center is illuminated with the beautiful illumination. The facade of the building is lined with huge rectangular glass panels. At the center, the construction workers had to assemble the glass panels like a giant puzzle.

The specialists of the office RA Studija have developed the project of the original office center. It was originally intended to build the building on one of Kaunas' central streets. According to the design claim, however, the government of the city thought that its bold exterior shape would violate the harmony of the historic streets. The office center has its own 'longevity secrecy' which helps to maintain the faulty exterior view. This secret is the special lacquer paints with which the drawing was applied to the glass panels. The colors, as well as the building are therefore weatherproof. Next - Atomium
