In the heart of the old town of Vilnius, in the architecture of the 17th century, there is a micro apartment of 36 m2. Upon entering the facility for the first time, one was greeted by the chaotic geometry of the spaces and a whole bunch of Soviet-era improvisations that needed to be controlled and turned into a cozy and functional home.
The creation is not without engineering challenges, we rethought every centimeter of the house without violating the authentic architecture and functionally solved plumbing, electricity, ventilation, heating, gas, water filters and all other invisible systems.
After deciding on the functional priorities, we looked for an aesthetic that was stylish and respectful of the architecture. and the main hall of the house, so we emphasized it by giving it a retro oval shape. For decoration, we chose an organic color palette and natural material: clay plaster, herringbone oak parquet and eco-recycled tiles. We combined Bauhaus-style biscuit Fioranese tiles with terrazzo surfaces. The biscuit-shaped leitmotif is repeated in the geometry of the furniture and facades. The characteristic rattan net became the highlight of the interior furniture.
We tamed the design process of the eclectic interior style, everything found its place and meaning. Mozart’s 1749 found its place in the interior. a piano that speaks of the home’s love of music. We have installed chromotherapy in the accent of the bathroom – lighting of a changing spectrum of colors in the shower, which stimulates the senses, relaxes and positively affects the state of mind.
