Apartment on Dzirnavu street in Riga`s Quiet Centre
A spacious flat is located in the historical part of Riga city which is known as the Quiet Centre. This part of the city is included in the UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Here you can find the most spectacular and magnificent Art Nouveau buildings in the world.
The flat in Art Nouveau building raised two important goals. The first – to create an interior that embodies long-term design values. Second – make substantial changes to the configuration of space to obtain more spacious and harmonious functional planning. Interior architecture concept based on the long-term and sustainable design principles. With a view to creating a space that embodies the persuasive design values, which will be significant in future also. Classical design features encoded in high-quality solutions for the design, finish, and furniture. The original functional plan of this apartment consisted of four medium-size rooms. This kind of functional plan created fragmented space effect. To solve this, we made substantial changes to the space configuration. Combining the two small rooms in the center of the apartment, we got a large living room. Adding an additional room from a neighboring apartment increased the total area of the apartment.
