About object:

The site of this project is located on the slope of Žaliakalnis old suburb residential area built mainly with villas from the beginning of 20th century. Formerly, the place was residential that became neglected during the last 70 years.

Our intention was to plan modern extension to existing old historical house, creating new living spaces to provide additional accommodations: living room, modern kitchen, home cinema with steam room and master bedroom. New volume was positioned in the southern portion of the site along plot area, turned outwards towards panorama of the hilly landscape.

The volume of the new building among transparent connection articulates these two pitched geometries and addresses the link between the two parties, the old and new. The materiality of the extension gives moderate contrast of the old and new to be expressed.
