House on Raudas street

A small wooden house had been rebuilt some decades ago by adding a brick structure. As there was a need for a second phase of extension we seeked a way how to integrate all parts into a unified whole.


Buildings have to accommodate various changes throughout the passage of time. In this case it was our task to reconcile the original historical part, a later addition and the new volume.
