The Green Hall project, situated on the bank of the Neris River in Vilnius, has been developed as a business centre for the SBA Group. The project is characterized by its expressive architecture that is inspired by nature’s forms. The 14 storey elliptical tower expands as it progresses in height and is enclosed in scales of glass which create a uniform skin over the curved, slightly skewed building form. Sunscreens have been integrated in the ventilated, double-layered facade, and windows can be adjusted internally to supplement the ventilation system. This provides a comfortable thermal environment while reducing energy consumption.
The dynamic exterior and the uniform glass skin are made possible by the building’s load bearing concrete core and columns which have been held free from the facades. This provides maximum flexibility in the design of office areas. Base building functions such as the elevator, mechanical installations, toilets etc. are gathered in the central core, while workstations, lounges and meeting rooms are placed on the outer perimeter to take advantage of optimal daylight conditions.
