A Stunning Residence in Vilnius

This fragile glass structure is composed around a medieval cannon foundry to house a family of four. Architects of Architectural Bureau G.Natkevicius & Partners designed this house to a banker and passionate antique book collector. The library with a book collection is equipped in the basement of historical lodge. On the ground floor are situated childrens bedrooms, living room, kitchen, dining room and wardrobe. Upper floor is where the master bedroom is located. Not only does this glass shape compliment ancient brick building but it also offers 360° views on the Pavilniai Regional Park. Transparent facade is very kind to the natural light, but it can get quite bright during the daytime. Not only does the neutral darkness compliment the old brick walls but using light absorbing darker interior colors makes the rooms cozier and draws attention to the outer views. I am also fond of the way this building sits on the landscape.

See maja asub meist Euroopa mastaabis mitte väga kaugel, nimelt ülejärgmise baltimaa pealinnas Vilniuses. Pankurist ja kirglikust antiiksete raamatute kogujast omanik soovis säilitada keskagset suurtüki valukojana toiminud hoonet ning arhitektid G. Natkevicius ja Partnerid büroost tulid välja klaasseina fassaadi lahendusega. Kollektsionääri raamatukogu asub vana maja keldriosas. Laste magamistoad, garderoob, elutuba ja köök söögitoaga on esimesel ning vanemate magamistuba teisel korrusel. Klasseina lahendus ei ole vaid kummardus väärikale vanale majale, vaid see pakub ka 360° ulatuses vaateid Pavilniai pargile Vilnia jõekäärus. Ma kujutan ette, et selline fassaad muudaks eluruumid päevavalguses üsna talumatult eredaks kui poleks interjööris just tumedat tooni kasutatud. Neutraalne matt tumehall toon ilmestab ka keskaegseid seinu ning raamistab vaateid loodusele. Mulle meeldib ka see, kuidas maja kallaku sees istub.
