Designed by 2XJ architects for a young family, the House in Druskininkai, Lithuania, is located in the woodlands, and its architecture takes inspiration from pine cones.
The interior layout is separated into two sections – one for relaxing and the other for living. The main living area features the kitchen, dining room, and living room which feels spacious thanks to the double-height ceiling. The kitchen and dining space are done with light-colored wood, the cooking surfaces are concrete for durability and a modern edgy feel. The living room is done with a large U-shaped sofa in bold blue, some metal tables and a colorful mosaic rug, the pattern of which is repeated in other spaces to connect them all in one. The master bedroom features light and darker tones of blue, floating nightstands and an upholstered bed. The bathroom is fully clad with mosaic and colorful tiles, which remind of the rug. The kid’s space is done with a single unit, which features storage below and a bed on top plus some climbing details to stimulate activity.
The decor is done with bold and muted colors, much wood and concrete for a laconic modern look. Which parts resemble pinecones? The upper wall and ceiling surfaces are clad in wood shingles to resemble a pinecone, bringing a bit of nature indoors. This is a totally unique decor feature that helps the house stand out. Bold color choices show up throughout, including in the custom artworks, which help to tie the spaces together and cheer up the rooms. Have a look and get inspired!
