Text description provided by the architects. A house that is integrated into a densly 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 beggining of the 20th century and gigantic residential houses of early Lithuanian indepencende 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.
