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.
