To create such an architectural character, which is clear, unique, in harmony to the landscape, preserves and highlights the natural surroundings, and the nature itself.
Integration to the environment
The place of the house in the quarter: the angular, square-shaped land plot which starts the row of villas emphasised with a small-volume turning, it maintains the line of the built-up area.
The management and landscaping of this land plot was a delicate solution: the already growing trees were preserved, a lot of emphasis was put to the natural landscape – the existing blossoming meadows were maintained as well as new ones were projected, a lot of attention was paid to the terrain gradual growth in height which, in combination with the newly made mounds creates privacy for the land plot; natural and environment integrating covers were projected, such as wood chip covers, natural stone, various types and sizes granite covers. Two exterior terraces were projected with a close relationship between themselves as well as to the interior and yard environment of the house itself.
The building is convenient to use and functional. This was reached thanks to the division of the spaces into four functional zones: the living zone (kitchen, dining room, and guest room), resting-sleeping zone (the major sleeping room with the wardrobe and batch, two sleeping rooms for children with a WC and shower), SPA zone (Jacuzzi and leisure room, sauna, WC and shower), garage and utility rooms’ zone. These zones are connected with a spacious corridor and open-type interior yard.
The interior was created as a warm, cosy atmosphere. Natural and reliable decoration materials shall be used such as concrete for the fireplace decoration and kitchen floor, natural wood for the floor of the greater part of the remaining areas, guest room, kitchen and SPA zones, as well as kitchen furniture‘ stone mass tiles for the corridor, SPA space, sanitation units.
The traditional Lithuanian ornaments are used for the interior. The concrete slabs used for the decoration of the fireplace have the imprint of the honeycomb ornaments and it means the “network of life”. The glass art reminds the ancient Lithuanian house door symbols with diamond-shaped ornaments interpretation.
