Airbaltic Passenger Terminal in Riga, Latvia by MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

This work opens our participation with ahead – architects, based in London, a studio which we now have a partnership. Our scheme sets the terminal building in the middle of the two piers, demonstrating a strong connection with both of them. The continuous language of form, materials and expression shape both interior and exterior of the terminal. Further-more, the proposed design is intended to be read as one object; one entity where both piers play an inner complicity.

Samrode Building in Ventspils, Latvia by Krists Karklins Design and Arhitektūras Birojs FORMA

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Krists Karklins Design

The design of addition to the Samrode, SIA construction company headquarters in Ventspils is based on the desire of the client and the project team to create a compact and contemporary architectural volume that maintains a harmonious and complimentary relationship with its historic city center context. The conceptual narrative for this building is based on three scales of purposeful design operations in response to opportunities/limitations offered by the site. From the urban design perspective, the massing of this building is determined by the precedent outlines of a munitions warehouse and a wooden shed, previously present on the site.

Private House in Marupe, Latvia by Open AD / Zane Tetere

The building was constructed around a growing body compositional center-inner gadren. The idea for this project was inspired by stylistic Japanese tsubo gardens. Often constructed in confined spaces, Tsubo gardens represent the essential elements and create the illusion of nature just outside or even intering the room.
