A Serene House Lets Pine Trees Grow Through Its Decks and Roofs
The proud owners of this modern new house located in Vilnius, Lithuania always wanted to live of a property with a small river or creek so they would be able to enjoy nature and to become a part of it, letting its beauty or serenity embrace the home from all sides. Their dream became reality when ArchLAB studio completed this wonderful project. The house is built on a lot surrounded by nature, with pine forests on two sides and with a river running through, dividing the property into two parts.
The house was organized into two main volumes. One is the main home with all the major spaces and common features and the other one is a small guest house. These volumes are connected with an open bridge. Wooden deck spaces make the transition between indoor and outdoor areas as well as between the volumes smooth and seamless. The architects also incorporated the existing trees into their design, allowing them to pass through the roofs. As far as the interior design is concerned, the house is simple, refined and full of cool and elegant features such as marble kitchen island and matching backsplash, an open fireplace, sleek platform beds and a round bathtub.
