Site is located close to the Riga City center in a mixed building environment from pre-war buildings to soviet time.

Masterplan

Site consists of three residential buildings with connected green courtyards and a small park. The landscape is organized to be open for public but with a certain privacy for local residents.

Quarter is directly connected to the park
Streetscape
New street with landscape elements that continues the architecture of the quarter and creates a green buffer zone with trees.

To blend in the architectural pattern of Riga Historical Center there are several façade techniques used – white tinted concrete, dark tinted concrete, exposed gravels and brick façade.

Entrance to the courtyard
Inner courtyard
Most of the apartments are provided with daylight from both sides of building (go-through daylight) and all the apartments have separate balconies or terraces.
A distinctive characteristic for the buildings is a corner staircase that provides the inner courtyards with extra daylight.
