K29 wins ‘Best Office Building in the Baltics’

We are really proud that our office building ’K29’ in Vilnius was awarded BEST OFFICE BUILDING IN THE BALTICS’. According to the jury ‘K29’ has been awarded because the building, through an integrated design, offers ‘increased worker satisfaction and productivity, improved health, greater flexibility and enhanced energy and environmental performance of the workplace’. Furthermore the building has ‘the ability to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the tenant’. K29 was awarded by the media organization “Business News”.

K29 - A flexible office building
The flexible office building of 16,000 m2 is built on the Vilnius Constitucijos Prospektas (Constitution Boulevard). The location is on the border between a large parkland to the north and the city's international business area to the east. The vast geometric shape of the building, with a vertical section through the roof surface and the rolling opening of the floor plan, creates an exciting new area in the public park.

The double facades, the optimal placement on the ground and the maximum use of daylight are all elements that promote the physical working environment. The building is flexible and adaptable in many ways. Blue. Making the floors and elevators make it possible to divide the building into smaller units depending on the individual's needs. To attract foreign companies, the dimensions and interior of the building are adapted to European and American conditions.

The Scandinavian appeals
K29 is the 6th project PLH Architects performed in the Lithuanian capital - and the office building is the result of a collaboration between Lithuanian investors, PLH and a local architectural firm. Among the other buildings PLH has undertaken in Vilnius is, among other things, Signature building 'Green Hall', Gedimino 9 department store and a mixed building with hotel, office, shop and luxury apartments on Ciurlionio Street. PLH has also completed renovation work in Lithuania and is currently working on another office building as well as a hotel.

"We have established a number of good relationships, and we can therefore do some things that the local architects can not. We have introduced the innovative ideas about workplace design, sustainability and energy-rich construction to the Lithuanian, while at the same time appealing to them to Scandinavians - they like to work very honestly with the materials.
