DO Architects, a multi-purpose architecture studio based in Vilnius, has designed 138 sq. meters. The cinematic and almost fantastical image gives the apartment an unusual gender and an accurate choice of subjects.

Terrazzo has unusual fractions of large fragments of marble, granite, and travertine, combined with a white concrete binder. Pieces of natural stone, each in its precise position, create a unique surface that brings together different shapes, colors, and cuts. The floor becomes the backdrop for every other carefully thought-out detail or object placed in the living room.
Complementing the luxurious floors are modernist couches and chairs, a minimalist kitchen, and Bang & Olufsen designer appliances. The walls and columns have a textured finish that absorbs sunlight, creating a sense of shadow play. Warm beige curtains take the brunt of direct sunlight, while light wood panels that separate the zones bring warmth into the living spaces.
A concrete staircase leads up to rooms that are presented in a completely different way – with pristine white floors and an almost curated, gallery-like interior.
The most intimate space inside the apartment – the bathroom – has a great view of the city. An additional skylight adds natural light. Reflected off wood wall panels, it heats cold terrazzo, marble, concrete, glass, and stainless steel surfaces.
