An apartment complex surrounded by quiet streets and green courtyards in the quarter between Ernestines, Dreilinu, Ormanu and Struteles streets. Laconic, modern architecture that lives in line with Agenskalns’ historic wooden and brick low-rise buildings. The silhouette of buildings with their gable roofs and natural finishing harmoniously fits into the visual character of the neighbourhood and enriches it. In turn, the ecological building materials and natural tar paint for the facade make the dwellings sustainable and friendly both for man and nature.
For every building, a front and back garden with flowering shrubs has been tended, so to bring dwellers closer to the nature while living the dynamic city rhythm. The landscape is designed with families in mind, so that every generation finds a place for both leisure and active pursuits.
The children’s playground consists of a multifunctional wooden installation, shock absorbing rubber clad relief for climbing and games, a secret tree house, sports area and mountaineering wall. All of this has been functionally and almost imperceptibly integrated into the residential complex, creating a contemporary, comfortable and inspiring environment.
