Public realm next to Vilnia river

Description

terra firma LT worked on planning proposals for this large open area adjacent to Vilnia river in the Užupis area in the Vilnius Old Town with Renova architects and MG Valda real estate developers. The area will connect the future development of Paupys (Skaiteks) with Užupis district via the new proposed bridge and will become a busy spot for city people. Emphasis on indigenous planting as well as historic context has lead the design. The functional solution of ramped access for inclusive mobility has been achieved with the use of the stabilization materials for the slopes. The scheme also comprises a viewing platform with the potential for a café, riverside picnic area and woodland playground, utilizing the slope. The scheme has been very well received by the Vilnius municipality and the Užupis community and is currently under construction.

Over the last 3 years terra firma LT has been continuously involved in regenerating the Vilnia riverside in historic centre of Vilnius and has worked on numerous public realm and landscape projects in the area totaling more than 9ha.
