About object:

A fair sized complex is embedded sensitively and creatively into the environment of a narrow Zveju street in Palanga, which is built up with small villas. As befits to the resort environment, the architects have chosen the composition of four small, narrow blocs matching to the surrounding buildings in scale and form, instead of one massive building. All of them are connected by a glass substance like a spine along the axis of the composition.
Each of the corps is finished in different materials. This strengthens the impression as if “Smilciu Vilos” is not one building, but a block of several houses. According to the architects, each colour or texture used for the façades reflects an element typical of the seaboard: fishing net, sand or tree.
The idea to dissolve the large object into multiple segments is no longer a new one, but it was successfully adapted in Palanga – the volumes of the complex are perfectly matched to the little scale townscape and attractive local areas are created between the separate segments.
