This project is located on the outskirts of Vilnius. The site has a strong and natural entrance – visitors are welcomed by large pine trees which surround the whole area.

The facades of the buildings are wrapped in Lunawood Thermowood “ribbon”. Vertical and natural wood panels lace the properties, softening the boundaries of the layers and blending in seamlessly with its natural and surrounding pine trees.

Lunawood Thermowood Solar Shades made from Lunawood battens – as used in this project, bind carbon dioxide and hence, are lowering the carbon footprint of any building. Lunawood battens are also an ecological choice to cool buildings down during the hot summer months.

This residential project is located at the edge of Vilnius, in Aukštagiris, with strong natural condition characteristic to the site. The project is conducted in an urban structure of scattered dots. 6 semidetached houses are coupled on the eastern edge of the plot.

Stripes of plaster and glass of entirely glazed ground floor and ribbon windows of the first floor shape the facades of the houses. Bands of vertical Lunawood battend in different densities soften and blend the limits of these „stripes“. Lunawood battens also form the fencing for the roof terrace while referring to the verticals of surrounding pine tree trunks.
