Dansk-norsk samarbejde vinder stort projekt i Vilnius

Schmidt hammer lassen architects har vundet en indbudt, international konkurrence om et 52,863 m2 stort urbant kompleks i Litauens hovedstad Vilnius i et tæt samarbejde med deres norske kolleger Lund & Slaatto Arkitekter.

Det multifunktionelle kompleks ligger i Snipiskes-distriktet og er en del af den ambitiøse strategi om en ny levende bydel i det nordlige område af hovedstaden.

Schmidt hammer lassen architects har i nogle år lavet en målrettet indsats for at komme ind på det baltiske marked. I 2008 vandt firmaet således den bæredygtige masterplan EcoBay i Tallinn, Estland.

Lund + Slaatto opfordrede schmidt hammer lassen til at danne hold med dem, da bygherren ønskede tvær-nordiske teams i konkurrencen.

“Vores inspirerende samarbejde med Lund + Slatto har helt sikkert bidraget til, at vi vinder det her projekt. Vi vil overveje at udvide samarbejdet med vores norske kollegaer, hvis vi i fremtiden finder projekter der passer til begge vores profiler,” siger John Lassen, ansvarlig partner for projektet i schmidt hammer lassen architects.

Hovedideen bag vinderforslaget er at tænke arkitekturen som en proces snarere end en endelig, statisk bygning. Det store areal på over 50 000 m2 er fordelt på tre selvstændige bygninger, der kan bygges i vilkårlig rækkefølge, alt efter behov over en tidsperiode. Når alle tre bygninger er færdige, skaber de sammen det fjerde element i projektet, nemlig det indre, grønne rum, som forbinder de tre bygninger.

De tre bygninger er formet efter de funktioner, de indeholder. Bygningen længst mod øst huser kontor og mødefaciliteter. Denne bygning har det arkitektoniske toppunkt i bebyggelsen og dermed en optimal eksponering af firmaforetagender. Bygningen mod den nordlige kant af grunden indeholder kontor og fitnesscenter, og den øverste del består af lejligheder. Denne del ligger lidt tilbagetrukket i volumenet, så det giver en privat tagterrasse, et flot udsyn og naturligt lys til boligerne. Den sidste bygning er placeret mod syd og har hotel og onferencecenter.

Hele komplekset består af 26,500 m2 kontor, 9000 m2 hotel, 6 500 m2 bolig, 5000 m2 butik og andre offentlige funktioner, samt 500 parkeringspladser i en toetagers p-kælder.

Bæredygtighed

Komplekset har et stærkt visuel miljøprofil med udbredt brug af grønne tage og tilhørende regnsvandsopsamling. Ressource- og områdeeffektive løsninger er opnået gennem de rationelle og fleksible bygningsvolumener, som suppleres af bæredygtige materialer. Facadernes design er med indstillelig solafskærmning af glaspartierne. Bygningerne er orienteret i forhold til solens gang for at opnå en balanceret opvarmning i forhold til arbejdstid og behovet for køling.

Scandinavian architects to build urban complex in Vilnius Danish architectural company schmidt hammer lassen architects has won a 52,863 m2 mixed-use complex “Konstitucijos Avenue 21” in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. The project is the result of a successful collaboration with Oslo-based Lund+Slaatto Architects, a strategic partner of schmidt hammer lassen architects. The client had requested cross-scandinavian architect teams for the task which led Lund+Slaatto to invite schmidt hammer lassen to join them. "The inspiring cooperation with our colleagues from Lund+Slaatto has surely contributed to our winning the project. We would consider expanding our collaboration with them in future projects if they fit both our profiles," said John Lassen, responsible partner for schmidt hammer lassen architects. schmidt hammer lassen architects have targeted the Baltic countries for a while as a potential market for their architecture. In 2008, the company won a competition for the sustainable masterplan project EcoBay in Tallinn, Estonia. The project is situated in the rapidly growing Snipiskes district in the north of Vilnius and comprises offices, apartments, shopping, fitness and conference facilities, and a hotel. The complex has three high building volumes creating a dynamic composition both within the block and towards the future neighbouring buildings. The buildings define the central space and the various passages and respect the objective of creating a coherent skyline in the region with four different height zones on the site. Each of the three constellations comprises individual units which can be built in separate building phases – and in any sequence one might find desirable at the time. In the northeastern part of the site, an architectural peak has been added to the volume, whereby the height is escalated in a rotational movement from the lowest element in the south east towards the tallest element in the northeast. The buildings are situated displaced from each other resulting in interesting interactions with the other volumes within the block. The offices are located in the highest building, which gives an opportunity for company exposure due to its landmark character. The north-western building contains offices and residential units on the top floors positioned to receive good sunlight and views. The hotel is located in the foremost building and easy access towards Konstitucjos. On the ground floor, retail shops are directly accessible from the main streets to contribute to urban life along and through the city block. Sustainability The city block has a strong visual environmental profile with an extensive use of green roofs and accompanying brown-water handling. Resource and area efficient solutions are achieved through rational and flexible building volumes in particular in the interaction with sustainable use of materials. The design of the facades is developed from a principle that allows for flexibility in the degree of enclosed/ glazed surfaces and sun exposure/ cooling. The buildings are also oriented according to the passage of the sun to achieve a balanced thermal heating in relation to working hours and the need for cooling. www.shl.dk
