House near Glazskunis
Surrounded by extensive meadows, the former community house is being transformed into a family home with a workshop. The large volume is used at full height - the middle part is filled with bedrooms on two levels, while both ends reveal spacious full-height rooms - a living room with a library facing the meadow and a carpentry workshop towards the garden.


Existing building


The principles of sustainability envisage the preservation of all functional elements – the timber frame and facade cladding. New metal elements are implemented: an entrance gallery, a roof for terrace, vertical windows, and large workshop gates.
