Description:

The custumer is an investor and obsolescent book gatherer. A four part family house. In the Middle Ages the range, where the building is arranged, was a gun foundry. Clients purchased a site where stood the old yellow block lodge with a cellar. Cleaning the mortar of a house uncovered that the hotel had been manufactured by old blocks which were made in an old Vilnius block processing plants. Becouse of a recorded and physical estimation of a house were considered to save it by wraping it with external glass shape. Verifiable house structure have been deliberately restored.
