Having established a Technology and Business Competence Centre in Vilnius, the US stock exchange operator Nasdaq invites us to take a look at their new office in the K29 Vilnius business centre.
“One of our company’s main priorities is to provide our employees with a functional, convenient and pleasant working environment. These are exactly the conditions we have in the new K29 business centre,” Arminta Saladžienė, the head of the new Nasdaq Vilnius office, said.
The new K29 business centre provides offices for Nasdaq Vilnius Services team members and employees of the Nasdaq Vilnius stock exchange and the Central Securities Depository of Lithuania.

Sandra Jovaišaitė, representative of Colliers International, the real-estate service company which provided consulting services in the office lease transaction for Nasdaq, says that the principle criterion Nasdaq had in looking for an office was comfortable conditions for employees and a convenient location in the city.
“In choosing a building, it was of paramount importance to the client to have the entire team on the same floor. K29 was, and for the meantime is, the only business centre offering an area of 2,300 square metres in a single space. The unique architecture of the building allows a real feeling of integrity to be maintained because employees can reach each other by simply going around the office,” Ms Jovaišaitė said.
Most employees and executive managers work together in an open space.
“The office is light and spacious, and it has the highest quality sound insulation, which is a huge advantage where everyone works in the same place. We find the Scandinavian model very acceptable, where managers are not separated from their teams. In our office, therefore, the executives do not work in offices with closed doors,” Ms Saladžienė said.
Vika Pranaitytė, an architect with Ambrasas Architects says that the Nasdaq office was designed with the Nasdaq employees in mind.
“We designed the environment to be healthy, comfortable, cosy and relaxing–one where people could feel more like they were at home rather than at work,” the architect said.
