The Spaces That Change Vilnius County / Lithuania / 2015

This modest living space of 63 sq m may be shaped and reshaped according to dweller’s needs. The layout of movable partitions and functional zones allows formation of as many as eight different spaces. 


In a modest-sized apartment, adequate space and daylight illumination are vital. It is often the case that one or another of them is inadequate, and sometimes both of them. 


The idea of rooms as isolated spaces becomes fuzzy when partitions are removed, flooding the newly emerged space with daylight on all sides that have windows. The spaces become visually connected, and you can walk round the whole apartment.  It is owing to the moving wall systems that the space is easily transformed, adjusted to dweller's needs and apparently reflecting his or her individuality.


The apartment space is only contoured by chief walls. Its segmentation is realized not by walls but rather by furniture volumes. This is the economical approach to the apartment space.  The only room that has actual walls is the bathroom.   The furniture acts not only as moving walls but it also performs the function of interior finish. 


The delicate parquetry texture and elaborate furniture design countervail the massive black cabinets. The interior design employs two basic finishing agents: the herring-bone oak parquet and the black wood chipboard. The horizontal flooring goes onto the vertical surfaces. The impression is that of a space that has no end or mirroring.
