RESIDENTAL HOUSE IN TALSU ST. 4, RIGA

After reconstruction

The building was designed in 1937, when Jānis and Beāte Ziveri decided to build a 2-storey residential rental house. The architect of the building was L. Hoffmans – Grīnbergs, who designed the building in the style of functionalism typical of the time, which was defined as a modern movement in the interwar period.

From today’s point of view, the project preserves and restores the building’s historic values, adapting the building’s layout to modern needs. The building is designed for one-level and two-level apartments with an area of 100 – 200 m2. The volume of the building has been increased, providing for the 3rd floor. Spacious glazing overlooking the square. Balconies have been designed in the southern façade of the building, the half-basement of the building has been deepened, relief has been created, thus providing two-level apartments with an en- trance from the yard.

This plaster is one of the layers that shows the stylistic trends during the 1930s.

Nowadays the building is part of the wodden architecture heritage of Riga. In order to preserve the authenticity the building it is insu- lated from inside keeping histori- cal wooden facade details, plaster. The courtyard facade is designed in contemporary way, enlarege- ning the windows towards the courtyard. The apaartments are designed according to the mod- ern needs.There are 8 one floor and two floor apartments in total.

The project is located in Ziepniekkalns – one of the Soviet districts of Riga. It is expexted that the new owners of the apartments will be the current inhabitants of this neighbourhood that will move from the old soviet buildings to the new project.
The plan of the building consists of standard apartment plans. The apartment area are similar to the soviet era apartments, but the apartment layout is more convenient – the living room is connected with kitchen. All three room apartmants are orented to two facade sides, four room apartments – to three facade sides. The parking lot is designed in half basement, leaving lots of space for greenery on ground level. On North East corner of the plot 17th floor high building is planned, that will serve as the local landmark. It is planned to develop the project in 2 stages.


THE HOUSE OF ČAKSTE

The project location is in Sigulda centre, on the crossroads of Lāčplēša and Čakstes St. The surrounding buildings are designed in Soviet times. The cityscape in this area is quite monotonous. The aim was to design a building that people would remember, that would serve as a local landmark. The building shape is rounded, the balconies are deisgned towards South, West and East sides. The balconies are designed with vertical wooden boards , that provides privacy for the apartment owners as the building is located in central space.


THE WORLD WITHOUT AN ARCHITECT

The project “ The world without an architect“ aim was to give an opportunity to any person with a help of virtual reality to become an ar- chitect. A program was developed that would allow for the person to build a house in virtual reality using only a hand and then print it with 3D printer.

The process is visible on the cylindre shaped 3D screen.

A roof garden is planned at the fourth floor level.

The apartments are organized in a way that most of them would be two sided. There are planned 72 rental apartments in total, that will be built in three stages.
