This two-story structure at the junction of Brivibas and Dzirnavu Street will fill the landscape of Riga while the permanent development plans of the building that matches the surrounding skyline are in the making. BR44 is set to house restaurants and luxury car showrooms. Its sleek facade, designed using metal composites, black shading, and expansive glass vitrines, stands as an embodiment of urban minimalism. An exciting addition to the city center, this project illustrates the transformational power of thoughtful architecture.
