The client is an entrepreneur in the agricultural production business (chickens(eggs), pigs rearing). His wife is a design student at the art college and she is fully interested in furniture design. A three member family house.

The house was built on the Minija valley slope. The house should be an image of a fire place made from huge logs or like the Noah‘s ship where the family with all their belongings and animals moved from the city.

    It would have been more perfect if those car parking spaces were not planned under the cantilevering volume.

    • mrSelden

      Perhaps a swimming area instead? Or at least some landscaping to compliment the structure. It’s way too barren to evoke a reaction.

      • jonas

        climate here is not very favourable for outdoor swimming pools

    • kais

      parking there needs lots of courage!!

      5sRZrf That’s way more clever than I was expecting. Thanks!

  • Dennis

    what’s the point of such a oversized cantilever? just “because you can”? it’s very unsettling…

    • anon

      Just a show off.

  • Cam

    master bedroom at the end of the cantilever?
    when the house is rock’n don’t come a nock’n

  • Jakov

    But it is a smart cantilever. It is formal expression of getting privacy for bedrooms in otherwise one storey house.
    And it has additional use as a car park! I find it well balanced.

    • Dennis

      that’s true.. but i would feel better if there were a few columns underneath :)

    Динамично, функционально и эстетично. Прекрасно сопрягаются объемы в пространстве и в геометрии планов.
