Reconstruction of the Wroblewski Library of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences

Reconstruction of the Wroblewski Library of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences

The project covered the reconstruction of the historic building of the Wroblewski Library of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences at the centre of Vilnius. The reconstruction involved the demolition of a book depository building added to the main library building (1885) in 1972.

The main façade featured a peculiar brickwork pattern and relief. The brick wall fragments installed at an angle and flanking pillars installed without overlap added a unique character to the building façade. At the same time, it blended well with the overall concept of the historic building.

A decorative brickwork design was created in order to restore original façades. The BAUT brackets were used for the restoration of the façade. Continuous rows of brackets were installed on the load-bearing structures on each floor, dividing the façade into separate segments. They were covered with decorative brickwork. The brickwork was installed below the bracket level using the BAUT elements to make sure the brackets are not visible. Thanks to this technique, the main façade of the book depository acquired its original look, and high-quality façade structure meets all applicable thermal and acoustic insulation requirements.
