2/24 The two volume composition is completed by a connecting panoramic volume from the East to the West. This volume is parallel to PamÄ&#x2014;nkalnis street and becomes a screen on the Northern side of Vilnius city. This element is interesting in two ways - both the internal [both horizontal and vertical] and external connections of the building to the city. This element is formulated to be extremely transparent, so that when the sun shines to reďŹ&#x201A;ect the surrounding greenery, and an impressive hall could be seen in the evening.
SITE PLAN PamÄ&#x2014;nkalnis, Tauras Hill or Taurakalnis is part of the slope of Neris River valley located in the Naujamiestis Eldership of the City of Vilnius, on the left bank of Neris. The territory is situated on top of Tauras Hill in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and it is of high symbolic and urban signiďŹ cance. It is a popular location among Vilnius residents and has an impressive panorama of the city centre that lies in a curve of River Neris. 1_National concert hall 2_Drop-off zone 3_Main stairs 4_Elevator zone 5_Amphitheater

At the moment, the building from the Soviet period exists at the site. The building is physically outdated, with the experience of a huge ﬁre some years ago, this building does not meet either functional or energetic needs anymore. Itself it is not a cultural heritage. The building has a Stained Glass Works that is needed to preserve. It needs to ﬁnd a place in some museum in Vilnius. The existing building is going to be demolished.
The main volume of the building is oriented parallel to V. M. Putinas street, which forms the further pedestrian route towards the Square of Lukiškės and the White Bridge. The direction of the small volume is dictated by the designed pedestrian lane axis starting from the crossing of Tauras and Pam#nkalnis streets towards the National Concert Hall. This track also separates part of the slopes of Tauras Hill, which will become the Park of the National Concert Hall.
The volumes of the new concert hall building are oriented in the site to become a connecting element between the old Lutheran cemetery and the Park of Tauras Hill. This is the cornerstone of the design of this building. The architectural idea is directly related to the urban concept. Volumes by reacting to urban directions, form the inner space of the building, where architectural intrigue is formed. These volumes are combined with stilobate, which becomes a link between the north and south, in other words, between Tauras Hill and the park. On the stilobate, the same as in the main facade of the building, the active open space is created. That is how the building becomes an open and involving object.

BIRDS EYE VIEW
The existing environment and newly created values that shape the directions and relationships creates the new volume of the building. The design of the building consists of two compositions and of a connection between them, which in this project performs not only in a functional but also in a role of the image of the city.

Structural concept Constructions of the building are made of reinforced concrete and steel. These are sustainable and durable materials with high holding a heavy loads. By the way, they absorb vibrations well." Slab, reinforced concrete, big monolithic overlays over the concert halls are designed from the metal truss. " To ensure the acoustic comfort of the building the extinguished partition elements with a high sound isolation layer are provided." The facade of the panoramic gallery - the structures of the glass.
