Gallery focusing on the open concept River Loft by InArch, a unique Lithuanian home boasting open spaces and glass walls.
Welcome to our gallery featuring the River Loft home by InArch.
Located in the Loft Town development within Vilnius, Lithuania, this elegant home was completed in 2015.
The design packs a wealth of stylistic detail and stunning features within its cozy 85 square meter interior.
Loft town is described as a “city in the city,” with its own apartments, studios, lofts, and working rooms of varying sizes. A new project that was designed as one continuous area, it’s the perfect place for a sharply designed home like this.
The aim of the designers was to create a cozy Scandinavian-styled modern loft interior for a young couple. This meant a spartan sense of space, a relatively minimalist structure and layout, and a restrained sense of color and tone.
The ground floor is an open concept space, folding a kitchen, dining, and living room into one connected area. While stairs wrap around the side, the loft style upper floor actually overlooks this space.
The side of the upper floor is an all-glass wall, from floor to ceiling, equipped with full size drapes for maximum privacy. This makes for a rather open, visually connected sense of scale in the interior.
With the soaring ceiling in the open area living room, massive windows are allowed to shine natural light throughout the interior. This two-story set of windows is one of many striking features that elevate and individualize the home.
The kitchen boasts oddly asymmetrical cabinetry positioning with varied sizes for an utterly unique look. This geometric emphasis grants a layer of personality and nuance to the interior.
Subtle bursts of color can be seen throughout, courtesy of carefully chosen modern furniture options.

In this overhead view of the living room, we can readily see the balanced arrangement of tasteful furniture, with a neutral set of tones against the rich hardwood flooring. A single blue armchair and ottoman offer a burst of color in this room.
Moving back into the kitchen area, we take in a large central island in white and light wood. This custom piece features an extended countertop that doubles as a dine-in area. To the right, the living room glows in natural light.
To the right, we can see the unique set of cabinetry floating over the countertop. Cupboards of varying size and shape are lined up in a shuffling row, creating a dense, three dimensional look.
Along the exterior wall, the same natural wood as the flooring can be seen framing the large windows and providing a radiator cover and seating space here at the left.
This image, taken from the open space near the staircase, captures the full height of the living room as well as the all-glass wall overlooking this area from the second floor. The mixture of neutrals and rich wood tones creates an elegant palette.
The home features a modern take on the traditional wood burning stove, parked on a glass platform near the window. The singular blue chair and matching ottoman create a subtle eruption in the neutral palette of the space.
With a full height view of this two-story space, we can take in the sheer verticality of the design. This makes the first floor feel even larger than it is, maximizing the small footprint.
With an overhead view of the space from above, we see the layered interplay of elements, from natural wood to grey fabric upholstery, creating a rich but subtle mixture of textures.
The upper level can be seen down the lengthy hallway at the top of the stairs, and right through the full heigh glass panels surrounding the master bedroom, at left.
The master bedroom is accented with another unique instance of thin natural wood slats, extending from a pseudo-headboard design across the ceiling. This wraps the entire room into a practical work of art.
Viewed at from overhead, we can see how the unique glass wall creates opportunities for stunning views from within the bedroom. The large curtain can be closed to grant the room some privacy.
The bathroom is, like the kitchen, awash in glossy whites and rich natural wood tones. The vanity boasts a vessel sink, while the walls are wrapped in asymmetric tile designs.
Here’s a closer look at the unique window frame extension, a series of thin slats that provide both aesthetic cover for the radiator as well as a small window seat bench.
