From the architect. The building is located in Lithuania's second largest city with the population of 400,000. The client chose to live on the hill at the center of the city with a view of the meeting place of Lithuania's two largest rivers.

Historically, the lithuanian immigrants to Brasil, Italy, America returned to their homeland and settled in the new districts. They named these districts by the countries where they used to live. This particular district was called Italian. The character of this urban area is low rise wooden buildings.

While driving through the impoverished street the building appears to be small, inexpressive and extends the scale of a poor surroundings. The inside of the building is in contrast to its look on the outside: huge spaces, a big courtyard with an extensive view. The house is a true representation of the introvert.

The facade is made out of Corten in order to emphasize the social background of a building. The inner facade is a glass aliuminum structure.

The patio creates a literary script: from the bedrooms you can see the living area and from the living area it is possible to see the bedrooms, the bathroom connects to the winter garden which is at the center of the house. The whole building is visible only from the sky.

I think we really need to see the view from the patio to fully understand the project and judge how successful it is. It doesn't appear that the courtyard and patio are overlooked, which would mean the open, transparent aspect of the house could be very successful.

wideangle tu nieko nepabrezi o tik tragiskai iskraipai realybe... ask nors viena Bahn'o nuotrauka su wide angle...

Šiaip tai wide angle l?šiai ir yra skirti miesto/architekt?ros fotografijai, kadangi nori pabr?žti t?r?, perspektyv?, k? yra sunku pabr?žti, sakykim, su televyku. O d?l Natkevi?iaus tai pilnai sutinku, jis, ži?riu, jau dažnas sve?ias Archdaily'je.

Kaip galima fotografuojant architektura naudoti wide angle lesius?... baisu. Bet Natkevicius yra daugiau nei vertas pagarbos.
