House In Vilnius / Aketuri Achitektai

A house that is integrated into a densely urbanised slope of a historic Vilnius suburban area dictates a new quality and aesthetics.

The structure comes in contrast with it‘s surrounding architecture – wooden wreckage from the beginning of the 20th century and gigantic residential houses of early Lithuanian independence years that might remind a small school rather than a residential house.

Even so, the house remains cultured, eligible and appropriate while firmly stating the new level of architectural value.

A cube-like wooden volume is integrated into the surrounding landscape of old pine trees and slopes, while containing all rationally sized rooms that a family of four might need.
