Office Residential Building | Riga, Latvia

The challenge for the architect Andris Vitols was to preserve the old facade of the original building situated one kilometer north of the Daugava River in central Riga. A bold contrast has been created with this sleek modern addition inserted above a traditional timber-clad facade.

Situated on a street with continuous adjoining masonry facades, this office and residential building creates a striking contrast with its pop-up addition clad in white Swisspearl panels. While the lower two levels are constructed in off-shutter concrete clad in timber boards, the upper three levels are constructed in concrete brickwork and clad in white Swisspearl panels assembled vertically and horizontally.
