About Modern Classic Penthouse

Turning Historic into Timeless

Nestled in the attic of a historic building in Vilnius, Lithuania, the Modern Classic Penthouse spans an impressive 120 square meters (1292 square feet). This residence benefits from an exceptional design which oversees the fusion of modern and classic elements.

Designed by Dovilė Švilpienė

Dovilė Švilpienė, a visionary in the realm of interior design, leverages natural finishing materials to set the tone. The space features marble tabletops, natural oak floors, and exquisite Murano glass chandeliers, exemplifying refined elegance. State-of-the-art renovation techniques have adapted the apartment to incorporate advanced installation technologies without compromising the building’s historic charm.

Strategic Spatial Arrangement

Key to the penthouse’s layout is the strategic implementation of functional zones arranged in a triangular configuration. On two sides, arched windows stretch from floor to ceiling, framing the living spaces and flooding them with natural light. The kitchen boasts a spacious island, while the dining and relaxation areas are perfectly placed to create a flowing, cohesive atmosphere.

Optimized Interiors for Enhanced Unity

In pursuit of coherence and visual harmony, Švilpienė painted the walls and ceilings in shades close to white, reducing the visual clutter that might come from low ceilings. Built-in furniture is custom-made to align seamlessly with the varying slopes and niches in the ceilings. Decorative elements such as lighting fixtures, paintings, and wall coverings are conscientiously chosen to accentuate and enrich the interior.

Innovative Lighting Solutions

The lighting scheme, a crucial aspect of the design, integrates both ambient and concealed options. This allows for versatile lighting scenarios that can transform the feel of the space depending on the time of day or the desired ambience, thus enhancing the penthouse’s luxurious appeal.
