That is a detached house for family appreciating privacy and nature proximity Σ]. The building, which is being designed in the old Seaside pine forest, contains the signs of characteristic building traditions. This characteristic slab construction for the old architecture of Klaipėda is interpreted with the help of structural wooden frame. The red clay bricks are also an inseparable apart of the landscape. The latter signs not only contextualize the architectural solution but also help to Express two important functions of the house: the first – to protect the family (strong, a little bit inclement volume of the burnt clay) -], the second – family habitable space and the connection with nature (light and soft volume of the wooden frame) – Σ (sigma – the sum of everything, summary). The shape of the building was determined not only by the realization of two functions of the house, which have been already mentioned, but also all the pines growing in the area. The inner space of the house merges with the pine yard space, and becomes an integral part of its continuance. Therefore, the natural materials are used inside as well (wood and rock). Even the house fireplace fire divides between the inside and outside equally.
