Interior designer Dovilė Švilpienė has furnished an apartment for a couple who appreciate the slow pace of life.

The apartment complex is located in a unique natural environment, surrounded by a forest.

The apartments, with a shared living/kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, occupy an entire separate volume on the top floor of the building and are visually reminiscent of a detached house, with the canopy of mature trees just a stone’s throw away from the terrace.

The apartment is designed for a couple who appreciate a slow pace of life, quality leisure time and who want to combine life in nature with the advantages of a big city.

Cooking, gourmet dinners with friends and board games play an important role in the daily life of the residents of this home, so a great deal of attention has been paid to the design of the kitchen, as well as to the lighting of the communal space, with different scenarios that allow for the selection of the most suitable lighting for each activity.

The main living-kitchen area is 7 metres high.

The open cantilevered staircase and the staircase wall, decorated with natural oak veneer panels, become the main axis and accent of the interior.

One of the tasks was to integrate the clients’ existing paintings into the design space: an empty wall space above the living room became an art gallery.

The interior organically reflects the continuity of nature: different surfaces and textures of natural wood, stone and natural motifs are abundant – the plastic spatial composition of the chandeliers creates the impression of raindrops falling down.
