Office building - Kaunas, Lithuania
- Architectural design: Kancas studio
“We were trying to achieve a dialogue between the old and new architecture: the new exterior face had to match the old brick exterior faces in the city block. Cor-Ten has just the right texture, structure and colour to achieve this,” explains architect Kestutis Kajokas.
Cor-Ten is weather-resistant and maintenance-free natural material, and its dark colour is well suited for areas close to busy streets: dirt will not show so well on the exterior face.
“The design cooperation was very smooth and excellently coordinated on Ruukki’s side: decisions were made quickly and correct deliveries came on time,” Kestutis Kajokas praises the successful project.
