Family house in a park

The owner of the family house has bought a parcel in beautiful surroundings of the Lithuanian capital Vilnius with an old metal factory building made from yellow bricks. When the first layer of plaster was removed, it showed up that the building is made from bricks produced in a famous Lithuanian brick factory and has an important historical value. The building is considered as an important landmark and would be a pity to tear it down. Architecture studio G.Natkevicius & Partners came up with a creative solution to keep the historical building and build a new comfortable residence for the owner. Architects built a second layer, glass covering with steel support system that encases the original brick house. The result is a contrast of materials that creates a cosy interior. A combination of old objects with their own stories and modern design and technology with their fine lines form together this beautiful art-piece.

  1. to me it looks like a fish house in a tank….the diffrence it’s larger, even more non functional and they say some people live there 24/24.
    I would rent this place but never build one for my own…

  2. Though the interior is somewhat cold and a little dark, I do like the combination of old and new. All the interior truly needs is a bit of warming up with better lighting to give the space more life. It’s a lovely structure surrounded by lovely grounds.

  3. touch of GREEN would hav enhanced d interior, it would resulted in expansion of inner spaces into outdoor green…. still d idea of amulgamation of historical building & morden glass skin is awesome…but interior is lacking……….

  4. I do believe all the concepts you’ve offered on your
    post. They are really convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too short for novices. May just you please prolong them a bit from
    next time? Thank you for the post. – Calator prin Romania
