Two families have always loved to listen to blues. A lot of blues. Played loudly - most of the time. There is no better place for their obsession than a forest. So, they built two black brick houses in the woods. With a white soul inside. Houses expressing blues.
Two houses in the forest, Lithuania
The families wished for a high central living space, from where melancholic music would fill their home and reach every room. They dreamt of opening the glass façade in summer and sitting outside on a large wooden deck – a place between bluesy rhythms and peaceful birds’ twittering. They wanted to pick boletus for dinner in their front yard and let the wild nature spread into the kitchen. They would never forget to enjoy some good white wine with a couple of friends.
Todays’ buildings must meet the challenges of the future. A beautiful look is no longer sufficient, even though it might be spectacular.
