Project Details:

Location: Riga, Latvia

Architect: Open AD Architects

From the Architect: "A family apartment inspired by the ascetic, reserved spirit of the North and the context of its building. The airy apartment is in Riga’s Lofts & Rosegold residential complex, which comprises a preserved but adapted historical riding arena and a seven-story new build. The concept of the building is focused on celebrating architecture as a form of art and creating a contemporary hygge-fueled living space in an affluent part of the city.The clients imagined a light, spacious and cozy home. They appreciate the neoclassicism style. Open AD created a bespoke design with respect for the wishes and needs of the family with young children. The material palette of wood, marble, metal, textiles and glass exudes quality and respect for established, long-term solutions."
