Nature Concert Hall 2016 in Zalenieki manor, Latvia by DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Nature Concert Hall 2016 is designed as an art installation made from 10 000 paper bats. Levitating cloud with gradient density over the musicians serves also as a screen for video and light projections. To achieve maximum lightness and levitation effect art installation is suspended in 3 paired electricity columns far away each from another. The volume of the cloud is referring to flocking bird and bat created dynamic geometries that can be found in nature. Black & white video and light projections, specially composed music are continuing the interpretation of dark world of the bat.

Baltic Way Memorial in LATVIA, RIGA by Selim Senin

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Selim Senin 

The main specialty of Baltic Way is togetherness. To reflect this idea on the project, spaces where people can spend time together, talk to each other, enjoy the scenery, make sportive activities, make presentations, and watch movies at night, etc. have been adopted. Our proposal is not merely a library to enter but a platform on which urban life keeps continuing thus a building which integrates with the city.

Revitalisation of Spikeri Square and Daugava waterfront promenade in Riga, Latvia by Arplan, Ltd.

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Article source: Arplan, Ltd.

Historically, Spikeri was a warehouse district with 58 warehouses, built in the late 19th century, to store cargo from ships and train freights. Nowadays only 13 warehouses have been preserved, yet it is enough to feel the historic atmosphere. Spikeri square is a public space, constantly exposed to the changes of urban development and society evolution process, thus the historical environment is authentic and multi-layered, reflecting the citizen attitude towards cultural and historical values, accumulated there over centuries.

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: ARHIS ARHITEKTI

The building is created for two scales of perception – towards the VIA Baltica highway it is designed as a linear volume to be perceived in movement, its form and material – wooden planks reminds Salacgrivas historical ship crafting tradition. On the other side, facing Riga Street and a pedestrian walkway, a smaller scale facade is designed which plastic-ally flows into the public space and is close to pedestrian’s scale of perception. New interior conception and colour principles were created to improve the style of the grocery store chain.

The reconstruction project of the wooden school building was initiated by Europa Nostra foundation in 2001. The purpose of the project was to draw public attention to preservation of neglected wooden architecture heritage by developing an example which would reveal the unique qualities of Riga’s wooden buildings and show contemporary way to their renovation. It was possible to start the reconstruction work only ten years later when European Regional Development Fund financed the project.

Music and Art School in Saldus, Latvia by MADE arhitekti

Saturday, August 31st, 2013

Article source: MADE arhitekti

The building of Music and Art school comprises two schools working separately until now. The classrooms are placed on perimeter, while practicing halls and libraries in the middle of the building. Light courtyards are the result of the compact plan, providing a lot of daylight and
reflected light in the middle of the school, and at the same time being the space for both schools to interact. Green colour in interior marks the Music school, while the blue is for the Art school.
