About: Residential house is located in a historic part of Kaunas
- Green hill.
The main goal was to find an understated contemporary
architectural language through which the building could
blend into Zaliakalnis’s historic context in as respectful
and subtle way as possible.
During the design process, the heritage values of the
block were kept in mind, and the architectural style of
the inter-war period was chosen as a reference point for
improvisation. The expression of the architecture - calm
and simple, great attention was paid to the precise and
technical execution of every detail.
