House in Trakai by AKETURI ARCHITEKTAI:

“Lithuanian nation tightly associates the idea of a country-house with outdoor toilets, no commodities, old furniture not fit even for a shed of a kitchen garden, a muddy pond and small crooked self-grown carrots.

We tried to have a fresh look at the country-house. Everything that a family might need to relax in the natural surroundings fits into a modest archetypical volume with no sacrifice of comfort.

The project is all about connecting with nature – the limit between the forest and the house disappears due to vast sliding translucent panels. Thermowood and shale require as little maintenance as possible, giving the residents all the time in the world to enjoy fresh air.”
