besides its transport function, balčytis studija‘s bus station seeks to concentrate services, small business and trade activities to help the municipality create new jobs in the region. surrounded by greenery, its design philosophy resembles recreational buildings, setting an alternative direction for the design of transport infrastructure. the permeable building creates an intimate relationship with nature and the surrounding environment, removing the boundaries between interior and exterior.balčytis studija tops vilkaviškis bus station in lithuania with undulating concrete roof

 

 

set on a triangular plot, the station has a building area of ​​almost 4.000 m2 and also serves as an open public space. the white color gives the building a feeling of lightness, further enhanced by the the subtle play of light and shadow. simple but long-lasting and natural building and finishing materials complete the construction, including concrete, glass, and painted aluminum.balčytis studija tops vilkaviškis bus station in lithuania with undulating concrete roof balčytis studija tops vilkaviškis bus station in lithuania with undulating concrete roof
