About object:

The building featuring the elegant appearance that has emerged in Druskininkai, Čiurlionio street, attracts the attention of every passerby. It’s hard to believe that this is not a solid individual residential house, but a public space – a restaurant. The building that opened its doors in 2012 is of a minimalist architecture. At the western border of the plot there is a three-story apartment building, while on the eastern part scenic views of the Ratnyčia stream winding its way below open up. The building leaning in parallel with Čiurlionio street aptly responds to this context. The silhouette has been formed from two volumes accentuating horizontal features. The taller, two-story part is set away from the street as a quiet dominant rising beside the apartment building. The lower one  – one-story as if makes a curtsey to nature, extends from the street to the direction of the river and elegantly hovers over at one angle over a slope. The exposed dark wooden beams resembling stylized eyelashes accentuate eyes – the glass showcases.

A cosy and warm 50-seat restaurant space is created inside the building as well – it overflows to the outdoor terraces close to Ratnyčia. Clinker brick inserts, toned wood finish both in the interior and exterior help creating the realization of a stylistically unified, contextual building on such purpose which at the same time becomes a mark testifying the maturity of the customer and the ability to appreciate the creative potential of professional architects.
