The house was built close to the Baltic Sea, where the owner can enjoy kitesurfing and have an easy access to the beach. Informed by the surrounding landscape, the design of the house accentuates traditional building techniques and locally available building materials. The team designed a modern shape and combined it with the softness of reed hatch.

While the structural frame of the house, made of laminated timber, is visible on one side, while the reed hatch covers most of the exterior wall on the other. Timber planks line the ridge of the roof. Pine wood dominates the interior that references rural architecture. It houses a wood-burning stove, an open-plan lounge, kitchen, dining area and living room.

“We wanted to make the interior soft, simple and clean,” said Kalinauskas. “We believe this kind of spatial experience helps the inhabitants feel relaxed without any disturbing details so they can enjoy the beautiful surroundings,” said the architects.
