Sename Stiklių g. esančiame name sukurtas buto interjeras modernus, minimalus.
Minimalus interjeras kaip senamiesčio galerija: baltos plokštumos ne slepia, o eksponuoja (užkonservuoja) skirtingus pastato istorijos etapus: senovines plytų sienas, kentėjusias nuo gaisro, sovietmečiu įrengtas gelžbetonines perdangas, špižinius radiatorius.
Skulptūra “Pasipuošęs, bet be batų”, 1998 – skulptorius, tapytojas Šarūnas Šimulynas (1939-1999)

Interior as an oldtown’s gallery
The interior of an old building situated in Stiklių street is modern and minimal.
The street name, which name came after glass merchants and glass manufactures, reflects in the interior as well.
One can see lots of transparency and lightness: a kitchen uplift from the floor,
hanging stairs with a see-through railing, a natural light well in the bathroom, light furniture, glass details, reflecting light and views seen through the windows, because the view is not being blocked by curtains. The planes of the space are bright, minimal, but the transparency is not only in materials and forms. The design of the apartment is transparent to the history.
The minimal interior is as an oldtown’s gallery: white planes do not conceal, but expose conserved different building stages of history: old brick walls, burned during fire, ferroconcrete slabs, installed during the soviet time, cast iron heaters.
Glass details in the interior reflect, combine with other natural materials: concrete, wood, iron, old bricks. Colour range is achromatic (black / white), however both wood and iron (copper) gets a reddish colour, found in the old bricks, when we opened the walls.
The house was built in stages, throughout different centuries and epoques, the beginning being dated back to 1500s. Researches found gothic style cellars, renaissance type masonry, one housing is from classicism. There have been a tailor’s workshop, shops, a brewery, inns in the building. In XVIII century it belonged to the Basilian Monastery.
