YCL city design & architecture lab designed the Villa Alsakys.
I hide low so they can gaze into and beyond your waters. I landed on your shoulders so I could shade you from the rain and winds.

Villa Alsakys – a summer house near Trakai, Lithuania. It sits above the ditch on the top – overlooking the lake.
A challenging site where the villa is located with a great elegance and comfort. “V” shaped concrete roof structure is placed on three concrete rings. The result is a three massive concrete structures with two horizontal lines which helped to avoid any additional structural support and expressed the architectural concept of the villa.
A living zone is facing South with a view of the lake, while service areas are located at the North of the building. A monogomous living zone is exposed to a dweller and all utilities are hidden within the concrete rings. Main house volume and entry volume are connected with continuous roofline and little bridge over the valley with an excellent panoramic view before the entrance of the house. The structure is bound with young pine trees, which will increase the diversity and quality of a changing natural living environment over the years.
