Villa G is located in Kaunas, Lithuania and is seated on the river bank of its largest river Nemunas. The river offers an exceptional view from the house, however, it is facing the North side of the site while the street is on the South.

The design challenge

The design challenge involved rethinking the existing façade, improving the convoluted interior layout, and enriching each space with finely crafted materials. We were required to reuse the existing footprint, while raising the top of foundation walls to exceed new flood regulations. Innovative materials were used to produce an energy efficient thermal envelope and contemporary yet contextually appropriate facades.

Practicing at the confluence of art, architecture, and building technology, we collaborate with clients to create buildings and environments in dialogue with culture and place.
