arches has reconstructed the old homestead in order to adapt it to its residents’ current needs while preserving the inherent characteristics of the building’s locations. the project’s two buildings appear almost identical as they are both clad in cedar shingles, while the main residence is surrounded by granite flooring and connected to the storehouse through a stone rubble path. copper trimmed openings complete the exterior of the buildings, while clay plaster and wooden frames define the home’s interior.exterior of cedar house by arches in lithuania

 

 

the two volumes are developed with traditional architecture forms, while a cut in the main house’s exterior provides a terrace from which residents can enjoy views of the surrounding nature. inside, the dwelling benefits from ample daylight thanks to floor-to-ceiling openings on the ground level. arches has chosen clay plaster, a local material, for the interior walls, complemented by natural wood and a muted color palette.exterior of cedar house by arches in lithuania exterior of cedar house by arches in lithuania arches wraps 'cedar house' in façade of wood shingles in lithuania detail of shingles in cedar house by arches in lithuania arches wraps 'cedar house' in façade of wood shingles in lithuania interior of cedar house by arches in lithuania arches wraps 'cedar house' in façade of wood shingles in lithuania arches wraps 'cedar house' in façade of wood shingles in lithuania arches wraps 'cedar house' in façade of wood shingles in lithuania
