3. Holiday home "9 Bangos"



Architect: Mečislovas Valevičius, 1988-1990


The original name of the holiday home “9 Bangos” was “Gintaras”, later “Jūros vilnis”. The building was designed in the late 1980s as an additional wing of the medical spa “Gintaras” (1975, architect Romualdas Šilinskas).

The architect of this building, Mečislovas Valevičius, had a special task – to design a separate building with a direct functional connection to the main building of “Gintaras” medical spa that was right next to the Palanga Botanical Park, surrounded by the existing pine trees. The main buildings of the medical spa already had their own unique stylistic and architectural identity.

The architect, sensing the special atmosphere of the place, having made observations and analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of the existing holiday homes, designed a holiday residence that fits perfectly within a given context.

The structure of the building was dictated by its purpose. The corridor plan structure had been chosen to fit in with the other buildings in the complex, placing the rooms with sanitary facilities along the corridor on both sides – 9 rooms on each side of it. In the southern part of the building, the lobby, the open staircase area, and the leisure facilities were to fully meet the needs of holidaying families. The building’s public spaces include a stained-glass window “Improvizacijos”, created in 1991 by the famous artist Nijolė Vilutyte, and a fresco-graffito “Sūkuryje”. The hall is decorated with works by Kazimieras Simanonis, a jeweler and a famous artist.
