The house is built in the house district “Žemyna”, in Akademija, Kaunas district. The plot on three sides is surrounded by neighbouring buildings, but one side of the plot is bordered by a small forest. The L-shaped building creates an inner courtyard that is oriented to the open side of the plot with a view of the natural terrain.
The building is
oriented towards the long side of the street, where solid monolithic volume
meets us. The one-storey building with a two-seater garage is distinguished by
its calm aesthetic expression. The main entrance is highlighted by a concrete
roof, which indicates the direction. At the entrance to the building we are
welcomed by a hall with two possible directions. Turn right into the sleeping
area with three rooms, a spacious bath and a parents’ bedroom with a separate
wardrobe. Turning left, we pass the garage, the sanitary unit and enter the
open leisure area – a living room, dining room and kitchen with a pantry. From
here you can view the inner courtyard and the green area through the window
are used in the exterior – thermo wood and concrete. The minimalist volume of
the building is surrounded by diamond-shaped thermo wood briquettes that
contrast with the accents of the building – monolithic concrete roofs.
monolithic overlay as continuity from the interior moves to the exterior with
expressive remaining texture. The long volume of the building is divided into
recesses and verticals – LED strips in the facades and narrow window rhythm. The metal fence replicates the vertical rhythm of the facade,
further enhancing the overall idea.
