A celebration of old and new, of opacity and transparency, of structure and fluidity, the new Railway Station Complex, Central Station Square, and Public Transport Terminal each take on many characters. Collectively, they are a symbol of modernity, designed with technology and sustainability in mind, but at heart they are inspired by an old-world sensibility, drawing upon the terracotta tiled roofs of Senamiestis.
Entering past the terracotta clad skin of the Railway Station, visitors are oriented to the historic station in a soaring passenger hall sprinkled with playful shadows from the building’s intricate skin. The graceful, curving ribbons of the Railway Station plunge and re-emerge forming the roofs and hills of the PT Terminal and Stoties Square. While across the territory, the Naujininkai Centre is a community center, hotel, and engaging pedestrian boulevard. The spatial harmony between these interventions emphasizes both landscape and hardscape, built space and open space.
