Young Family House
by ŠA atelier

This project is a young family’s apartment in the Old Town near the train station in a building built in 1862. Over the course of 156 years, the building has seen various uses and owners.

With its glamor and magnificence that marked the peak of the bourgeoisie times.

The interior design of the apartment, developed by ŠA atelier, was aimed at releasing its space from its oppressive past.

ŠA atelier is a Vilnius-based young architecture office. You can read their approach to professional practice, stories and future challenges in their profile at New Generations.

A new space was created as though it flowed through the entire apartment, revealing the prospect of multiplicity and the depth of the premises.

The openings in the old walls are cut in such a way that the new space is adapted to the modern family life, but at the same time leaving a mark of the old structure of the plan.

Only one new partition was designed in the apartment, which is at the same time a wardrobe and an engineering communications collector.

On the one side it holds the kitchen, on the other side it serves the needs of the bathroom.

(and on the top it supports an entresol for larger things to store)

Inside the apartment there is only one door for the bathroom which has a hole for pets.

The bathroom is abstract, its image almost does not give out the function. All accessories are integrated, the sink is located in the niche of the former window. While standing in the shower, you look through the entire length of the apartment.

At the end, the view is extended by a mirror.

All original authentic decorations have been preserved. Furniture, lamps and switches were made by the residents themselves.

Panel parquet, ceiling decoration, door frames.

The implemented project marks a new and bright stage in the whole building life, along with the young families that are starting up there.
