These clever houses at Svencelė go to show that good design doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Every detail is meticulously considered to design the most cost efficient houses possible. Unnecessary layers have been stripped, revealing simple yet beautifully practical and durable interiors with natural pine floorboards and unplastered walls. The double height kitchen and living space creates an impression of spaciousness inside the otherwise compact three bedroom houses. Each house is crowned with a roof terrace, a private garden in the sky from which residents can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding canals and lagoon.
These homes prove that you really can have it all – uncompromised architectural design quality in a stunning natural location for the same price as a cookie-cutter house in the suburbs.
