APARTMENT EL19

Family apartment, Riga, Latvia

In a late 19th century eclecticism style building, one part of the apartment had acquired new layers in the Soviet years and “wild” 1990s after Latvia regained its independence. Fortunately, the other part still maintained many of its original features, such as cornices and coved ceilings. The tactful balance between the old and new forms the backbone of the design as designers preserved what was left and injected brave new elements, upholding the distinction between the two parts of the apartment. The clients – a family of five – allow themselves to enjoy life to the fullest, and their joy and passion both fuelled and inspired us too.
