Ciurlionio flat (1998-99) – Located on Ciurlionio Street, in the heart of
Vilnius, this project involved the renovation of a two-story apartment in
one of the historic districts of
Vilnius. The street was named after the
famed composer and painter
M.K. Ciurlionis, who was a key figure in the
Impressionist movement.  While we had a lot of flexibility with the design,
we liked the traditional layout, opening up the kitchen to the living room
and incorporating a wood burning stove in a filled-in door way.  We chose
to expose the brick on the partition wall, painting over it to retain the
lightness of the interior.   Floors and doors are ash, and the stairs are
oak, both common to Lithuania.  Upstairs there are three small
bedrooms contained within the attic roof with skylights to the street
elevation.  The over all area is approximately 120 square meters (1200
square feet) with a spacious dining living area.  The interiors were
published in
Namas magazine in 2001.
