Text description provided by the architects. The very process of designing of this house was like a materialization of every architect's dream - awesome land plot in pinewood park in the very best suburb of Vilnius, young ambitious and very demanding owners seeking for the best quality and extraordinary high-end solid house for their family to live in.

The task was clear, the budget of the project gave us an opportunity to express ourselves, as well as to grow up as architects.

The initial will from the client was to have strict-shaped house with echoing of the rectangular. Therefor lots of glass framed in concrete construction and decorated with fine polished stone exterior and extremely spacious and light thus strict volumes in the inside were softened to cozy but still impresive place for living by linking different levels by arched massive stares and using warm oak wood to contrast white/ glass/ steel elements. And all the details - every thought of and discussed over and over and over.
