1/5

This proposal is for a new hotel within the medieval fabric of Riga Old Town. The facade design reinterprets the divisions between historical buildings that once stood on the site; this also breaks down the scale of the building volume to integrate it into its environment.

The ground floor is an inversion of the cloister typology with an external-facing arcade surrounding public internal spaces - a play on the nearby Riga Cathedral's classic courtyard-facing cloister.

Competition submission in partnership with Kalve Arhitekti.
