1. Šiauliai association of hunters and anglers house



Architect: Virgilijus Kačinskas; constructor: Petras Valiukonis, 1983


Just a few hundred metres from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, a building of distinct function and aesthetics is hiding under the branches of chestnut trees. The villa-type house was built in 1983 according to a project by architect Virgilijus Kačinskas called “Nature House” and from the very beginning, it was intended to be a meeting place for the Šiauliai Association of Hunters and Anglers.

The yellow brick two-storey building instantly catches the eye with its diamond-shaped fenestration, which gives the building a unique and singular character that weaves together the architect’s creative style, late modernism and regionalism. To achieve the desired design, materials typical of the period, such as aluminium, textured plaster, concrete mosaics, as well as local materials, such as yellow brick masonry and uniquely patterned wood panelling, are used. The artistic appearance of the interior is complemented by a floor mosaic created by Saulius Ruzgys and a spacious staircase leading up to a spectacular gathering space.
