A family apartment in Riga. Located in the Lofts & Rosegold residential complex, which comprises a preserved but adapted historical riding arena and a seven-storey newbuild. The concept of the building is focused on celebrating architecture as a form of art and creating a contemporary hygge-driven living space in an affluent part of the city.
The owners of the apartment imagined a light, spacious and cosy home. They appreciate the neoclassicism style. Considering the wishes and needs of the family with young children, and the context of the living space, we created a bespoke design inspired by the concept of the building, and the ascetic, reserved spirit of the North. The material palette of wood, marble, metal, textiles and glass exudes quality and respect for established, long-term solutions.
We adapted the floor plan to better suit the family’s lifestyle. The apartment now consists of three bedrooms, an office, playroom, open living room and kitchen, corridor, technical room and walk-in wardrobe. It benefits from access to six balconies.
The apartment in Riga demonstrates Open AD’s skills in furniture design and celebrates the high level of craftsmanship in Latvia. We worked with long-term partners to produce the bespoke features, such as the wall panelling, kitchen units and child’s bedroom furniture. Select design pieces by brands including Masiero, Artisan, Moroso and Vibia complement the custom-made elements.
The riding arena dates back to 1895 and is the work of architect Karl Johann Felsko. The newbuild is by ARHIS architects.
