I discovered this astonishing house as it was featured on the tv show, "Extreme Homes." The initial plan was to demolish the existing decaying house. It was discovered that the original house under the glass building was actually from the 16th century. After some research the small historic house had been previously owned by Napoleon. Destruction was not an option at this point. Natkevicius decided to building a glass case surrounding the home, doubling as both extra living space and preservation of the existing structure.

Description directly from the architects:

The customer is a banker and antique book collector. A four member family house.

In the Middle Ages the area, where the building is situated, was a cannon foundry. Customers bought a site where stood the old yellow brick lodge with a basement. Cleaning the plaster of a house revealed that the lodge had been built by ancient bricks which were made in a old Vilnius brick factories. Becouse of a historical and physical value of a house were considered to preserve it by wraping it with outer glass shape. Historical house structure have been carefully restored.

Library of a collection of ancient books equipped in the basement of historical lodge. On the ground floor- childrens bedrooms and in the attic- masterbedrooms. At the glass shape zone in the basement we can find the turkish bath with a rest rooms and a garage for two cars.

On the ground floor there are living room, kitchen, dining room and a wardrobe. Glass form is not an end to itself. From each point on the ground floor area on a 360 degrees offers fantastic views of regional park. Ground floor space is like a yard of a historical lodge.
