Lithuanian studio Implant Architecture designed the house to have no obvious front, with large areas of glazing at each gable's end giving a different perspective over the landscape.
"Having a full panoramic view, the house was designed without a particularly expressed direction, enabling a 360-degree overview," said Implant Architecture.
The negative space created by this star shape forms small pockets of semi-private outdoor space between the walls of the house. These become terraces onto which the living space can spill out.
"The standing seam roof creates a graphic pattern emphasising the plasticity and multi-directional nature of the roof," said the studio.
This roof sits flush with the gables of the house, and to the south this metal surface folds around to become a deep reveal for the high-level window.
Rather than being sheltered by the eaves of the roof, the main entrance to the west sits as though cut-out from one of the building's gables, the top half of which still hangs above.
The plan, roughly arranged around a bent corridor that curves below the centre of the roof above, has bathrooms at its core surrounded by a series of bedrooms to the north. A looser set of living spaces are on the south side of the house.
A skylight, white walls and a glossy stone floor help brings light into the central corridor, marked by a run of timber doors leading into the bedrooms.
In the living spaces the high roof pitch creates double-height areas, divided by a band of dark wood parquet panelling that runs around the kitchen area.
Above this, a triangular, clerestory-level windows follow the slope of the roof, drawing light into the white-finished upper half of the spaces while preventing overheating from direct sunlight.
The exterior is clad in stained oak boards to give the house a pre-weathered look that's in keeping with its surroundings.
Stone off-cuts, sourced from a local stone yard, were used to pave an area in front of the main entrance to the house, creating a distinct pattern with a range of colours and textures. The remaining perimeter is surrounded by wooden decking.
Several other houses have been designed to take advantage of Lithuania's rural landscape.
