Text description provided by the architects. We got a chance to experiment on the topic of traditional Eastern Lithuanian countryside architecture – the project site is on strictly preserved natural reserve with a special stress on ethnographic peculiarities.

It still has elements that are usually found only in old manors – giant-sized fireplace, bread baking oven heated with wood, a cloud of simple white lighters resembling historical chandeliers, sauna with huge windows facing the glass-surfaced lake, together with some modern family treats for kids – a tree house or an adventure park in the area. This is a place, where ascetic life of older generations has been replaced by a contemporary vision of generation ‘next’.
