Have a look at the spectacular Utriai Residence designed by Architectural Bureau G. Natkevicius & Partners. The house was built on the Minija valley slope in a small town of Utriai in the north-west of Lithuania. The total area of the project is about 3 000 square meters but the house itself stands on only 424 square meters. The architects’ concept was that the house should resemble a fireplace made of huge logs or the ship of Noah and his family moving from the city. This fantastic structure stands out amidst the lush greenery and surrounding landscape and symbolizes an escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. The residence's most prominent feature is the protruding structure located just above the garage. Dark wood which was used for the façade contrasts with wonderfully green grass. The spectacular views of the nature and the valley are available from the large windows. Really very interesting!

Point Dume Residence is a very unusual and spectacular house, which is interesting both for its exterior, and very bright and modern interiors. The house was designed by the Griffin Enright Architects in Malibu, where each house can be called a work of art. House construction, which seems unwelcoming and massive from the street, made of concrete. The house even resembles a medieval castle. But huge fragments of glazing, glass doors leading into the courtyard and open space for outdoor recreation soften the harsh look from the opposite side of the facade. There is large and comfortable swimming pool in front of the house, which is also framed by a stone slab.
