The airline company Small Planet Airlines boldly chose a late 19th century Historicism building for its office, and in spite of all the challenges, managed to create its own authentic space inside.
The first thing that stands out about the interior is that it is an office without doors. This message is encrypted with the company’s standpoint of openness and cooperation. This is also conveyed by the interior, which required considerable effort in meshing the old architecture with new ideas. During the process, some interesting stories emerged about shorts or disappearing handrails.
The office contains as many common working spaces as the existing structures allow. In order to preserve the authenticity and quality of the building, as many natural materials as possible were used in the office interior, including solid wood doors and cork floor covering, and the brickwork was uncovered on the mansard floor as its final finish. This environment also has a place for illustrations done by an artist that reflect moments that are important to the company.
The existing architecture and the location not only demanded compromises but also provided added value – employees can enjoy the interior terrace surrounded by trees and admire the scenery of Vilnius Old Town. Small Planet Airlines has opened its doors and invites everyone to enjoy it together.
