About Timeless

Nestled atop a picturesque hill in Vilnius’ historic city center, this captivating apartment project, designed by Edita Righetto, effortlessly blends modern elegance with the timeless charm of the 18th-century building. Consequently, the goal was to create a haven that would not compete with the breathtaking cityscape views but rather provide a serene and refined space from which to enjoy them.

Harmonious Design Meets Historic Grandeur

Thoughtfully designed, each element within this apartment was carefully selected to complement the building’s historic nature. From the light, airy color palette to the use of natural materials, such as custom-patterned wood flooring, natural stone, and smoked oak furniture, the interior seamlessly blends contemporary design with the property’s historic roots.

Spacious and Functional Layout

Owing to the apartment’s location in a former monastery complex, the thick walls, measuring nearly 3.3 feet (1 meter), presented a unique challenge. However, the designer’s keen eye for layout ensured an efficient and harmonious flow throughout the two-story home. The first floor boasts a spacious combined living and dining room, accompanied by a generously sized 13.8-foot (4.2 m) kitchen island. The second floor houses two luxurious bedroom suites, each with an en-suite bathroom and ample storage space.

Unparalleled Views and Elegant Detailing

The apartment’s crown jewel is undoubtedly the master bedroom, which features not only stunning views of the Vilnius cityscape through its windows and balcony but also a captivating glass wall that opens up the space to the dining room below. Throughout the home, the attention to detail is evident, with effortless elegance infused into every corner, from the natural fiber soft furnishings to the brass accents that add a touch of refinement.

A Harmonious Oasis of Tranquility

Ultimately, this remarkable project seamlessly blends the historic charm of its setting with a contemporary, light-filled, and airy aesthetic. By carefully selecting materials and furnishings that speak to the building’s past, the designer has created a timeless haven that invites residents to bask in the tranquility of their natural surroundings while enjoying the grandeur of Vilnius’ historic cityscape.
