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.

  1. Thumb up Thumb down 0

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

  2. Thumb up Thumb down 0

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

  3. Thumb up Thumb down 0

    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.

  4. Thumb up Thumb down 0

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

    would you please explain for me about the structure stability and how is stand above the ground
    thanking you

  6. Thumb up Thumb down +1

    Good job , i like it , but i would ev like it more if the elevation was reflected on the section and the spaces inside this cantilever was stepping up as will …… !

  7. Thumb up Thumb down +1

    What is the reason for discussing about cantilever? This house built for client, client likes it… I alsow just like suspended solutions… It is private intimate think.
