River Apartment in Vilnius Old Town
The area is located in Vilnius Old town near the river Vilnelė. On one hand it's an urban space that have been shaped through ages with historical buildings around it, but on the other hand it's on the river bank and surrounded by nature. These contradictions became a basis of the main idea about living in this kind of space. Buildings divide area into two diffirent parts. One located to the river and nature and other to the public space. Volumes were an interpretation of Vilnius Old Town houses and collected main features of it represented in a fresh and modern manner. This project is about the new and authentic way of living in a historical Vilnius area and create a link between antique and modern.
The main idea contains basic features of Vilnius Old Town - verticals ( cracks, passages), inner courtyards and module. All this is linked to the natural and urban surroundings creating fresh and modern paradigm of living quality.
Beside the apartment block a public space was born. Nearby buildings shaped triangle square where the wooden terrace was placed. Square ends up on a fascade of an old historical building which is meant to be protected because of it's authentic value. First floor of the building used to locate cafe and a small book shop.
Typical flat with two rooms, bathroom and kitchen. Living room area oriented to the river. Ground covered with wood, parquet and tile.
