In the very centre of Vilnius at Lukiškės Square, the Live Square complex has brought fresh urban changes to this part of the city. The project has also opened a new public space with a view of the city and an oasis of greenery.
Architect Povilas Čepaitis has no doubts that the image of the square formed on part of the plot has remained in the minds of the people, so the authors of the project wanted to preserve it by incorporating it into the overall design.
The complex consists of several residential and two commercial buildings: the Hilton Garden Inn hotel and an administrative building.
The idea is implemented - the square is moved to the roof of the administrative building.
The emergence of a completely new public space also offered new perspectives and panoramic views of the city.
The terrace is public and can be accessed by a separate elevator by practically anyone.
Those who want to visit it do not even need to enter the building's lounge. A completely separate entrance was designed from the side of the street. A plan to install a café on the terrace is already in the works, but it will only occupy a small area. The rest of the area will be left completely public. The landscape architect who designed the roof square’s landscaping chose plants that would be viable all year round, making the experience of visiting it truly uplifting and inspiring. Be sure to get closer to the clouds!
The Hilton Garden Inn Vilnius City Centre, part of the Hilton chain of 5,700 hotels worldwide, opened its doors in Vilnius in July 2019.
With a spectacular rooftop terrace overlooking the fabulous Vilnius skyline, the new hotel has already earned the highest marks for service quality on Booking.com and TripAdvisor in just a couple of months.
The hotel is located in the Live Square complex, developed by real estate company Eika. Investments in the project, which includes a business centre, a hotel, three residential buildings and a shopping gallery, will amount to EUR 49 million.
