Yellow Brick House, Lithuania

Located in Lithuania’s Pavilniai Regional Park, near the capital city of Vilnius, G. Natkevicius & Partners’ Yellow Brick House might stand out when you look from afar but the blend of brick and glass when upclose, gives a stunning contrast.

With the owner of a plot within the park finding a small, yellow-stoned building at its core, instead of knocking it down, they built around the historic, once cannon foundry structure.

The exposed brickwork within the outer walls gives a wonderful warm tone and feel, while the unique, curving staircase dives through the property perfectly. Sitting an antique library in the basement plus a slew of bedrooms and the expected living, dining and bathrooms scattered throughout, the Yellow Brick House probably won’t be going on the market any time soon, so for now you’ll just have to sit back and admire.
