A dwelling house for two-person family was reconstructed from the former farm building. It is located in a resort village of Kačerginė. Aim of the project was to harmoniously integrate into existing urban structure of the village as well as in a natural environment. The forms and proportions of the house are of the simple basic traditional house typology, facade is black. By using these, almost generic, architectural solutions, house calmly disappears in the surroundings and becomes one of the many. During reconstruction the building was extended by adding a new dining and kitchen areas. The space of the ground floor is used as a common space and is completely open to the pine forest.
