Private villa in Giruliai, Lithuania

The family villa, located in Giruliai, Lithuania, is built near to the Baltic Sea beach where water, sand and conifers form a beautiful complex. Carefully selected materials connect the building naturally to the Baltic Sea coast.

Lunawood Thermowood is dimensionally stable, resistant to decay and resin free. It can be used inside or outdoors, in any climate.  Lunawood is an non-toxic natural product and thus it is a sustainable and durable choice for facades, solar shades and other exterior applications as well as for interiors.

Thermally modified timber has beautiful brown tone, which naturally weathers over time to beautiful silver-gray patina, if the wood is left untreated with pigmented and UV-protected wood oil.

The family villa is built just a few hundred meters away from the Baltic sea shore, where water, sand, pebbles and pines all mix together. Views, experiences and sounds of the surrounding nature accompany one’s approach to the villa and fill the interior with its calm presence. The carefully selected, sustainable and naturally weathering Lunawood Thermowood in exterior, blend the building to the natural Baltic seaside.

The prestige building is split in two volumes to create different spaces for variety of functions and comfortable living. Volumes and spaces are connected through different paths, making the villa very engaging and suitable for every family member. The calming presence of wood can be felt in every part of the building from the interior to the garden. Over the years, the building gets a new look as the exterior cladding gradually turns gray.
