Forest House by Inblum Architects reflects the local spirit of the Lithuanian landscape

26 Sep 2022 News

Reflecting the local spirit and context, this reconstructed residential house in Lithuania’s Pavilnys Regional Park retains a link to the past while sensitively meeting the needs of a modern house. Anchored into the terrain and surrounding old apple orchard, the house by Inblum Architects sits at ease in its environment.

The existing residential building and adjacent rebuilt structures form the core of the newly formed building complex. Inside the restrained gable volumes, space is deconstructed in a such a way as to afford for terraces, beautiful views to ski areas, intimate spaces, and plenty of natural light.

Indoor to outdoor connections are a dominant theme of the house. These connections include a stepped terrain that integrates into the landscape, the preservation of an old apple orchard and a minimalist interior that frames the surrounding landscape.

Conveying past-present-future connection to the fullest the architects say “The history of the place continues through the transformation, with the old buildings turning into new ones and the new ones gradually getting old.”
