To give your soul homes in Svencelė. In relation with wind and water we are building recreational infrastructure, where you can find your identity. From our own yard, past the gateway of the port, we will dash across the waters of the lagoon; build a community and gang-like relationships. Sail and kiteboard.
The idea for a unique place in Lithuania, a settlement of houses connected by a canal system in Svencelė, on the shore of the lagoon has been developed from 2005. We have already gone through several stages, from environmental analysis, getting the Detailed Plan approved, to establishing the Kite Spot – a small shipping container town. The initiators and investors of the project are fans of the area, born and raised here. Our wish to not only tidy up the shore of the Curonian Lagoon but to also develop seaside and invest into new infrastructure for waterfront living. That resulted the birth of UAB Kopa Vilkui on 25 July 2017, which now develops a territory of over 8 ha in Svencelė.
