House tour- sublime modernity

Modern, serene and beautiful...this family home located in a regional park near Vilnius in Lithuania is a wonderful example of preserving the old while making something new...What at first glance looks like the reflection of a nearby house is actually the original yellow brick cottage that was so ingeniously wrapped in an outer glass structure by the architects at Architectu Biureafter it was discovered that the cottage was made with some valuable old bricks. The discovery led to a complete change of plans and the building of this incredible home...




Enveloped in this shell of glass, the ground floor has an unmatched 360 degree view of the regional park...




The simple yet stunning facade...




A fabulously modern staircase connects all the different levels of the house, starting from the basement...




Another look at the staircase juxtaposed with the original brick structure..such a beautiful contrast...




A modern minimalistic dining area...




Finally, the kitchen with it's fabulous view that must lead to some really inspired cooking!!





I could very happily live here...could you?

P.S.: You'll never guess what all it took for me to compose this post..I have not been able to sign into my blogger account through explorer since this morning on my laptop( which incidentally has all my image files)..my other option was to use the iPad which only allows for composing the post in the dreaded HTML mode..I have no idea how I pulled it off..if anyone knows an easier way of blogging on the iPad, please be kind enough to share!! I have heard about the Blogpress app. but don't know how good it is.

Sublime it is.
It goes without saying that the star is the staircase.
Love the whole house.
