In the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, architect Rytis Mikulionis renovated a former Soviet army barrack into an apartment that includes a mezzanine-level bedroom. Photo by Hertha Hurnaus.
The kitchen fits neatly on one wall. The architect reads at a black Ligne Roset dining set, beneath a Col pendant lamp by Francisco Luján. The tublar steel mezzanine rails were designed by Mikulionis, who enjoyed being exempt from the safety concerns that a client would force on him.
