It is a fresh and radiating homage to Classic Modernism and yet stands as an autonomous sculpture of a house in an evergreen pinewood.
The new wood-clad building is divided into five parallel parts of different depth thus reflecting the scale of the neighbouring small buildings.
With all of this exquisite simplicity - the pool, jacuzzi and Turkish baths sparkle in real gold - a 24-carat gold leaf mosaic combined with dark green nacre.
The court is spanned by a shed roof structure, allowing the diffuse north light to enter the hall so that during the tennis game there would always be a smooth supply of light - nor shadows or direct sunlight.
Exhibitions, grand receptions, glittering parties, gala dinners, and concerts will take place in this guesthouse in a former art-nouveau villa near Riga’s Baltic coast.
Reconstruction and restoration project of a private house, which brought the nominee diploma in The Latvian Architecture Award (2019) to Vincents Architecture.
The building was designed by Eizens Laube in 1926 and it has been renewed as unique gift. The connection with the past is as present, as powerful is the story told by the details.
A well-considered lighting emphasizes individual architectonic details of the villa, as well as creates a different image of the building during the dark time of the day.
The building and the garden are designed to emphasize the proximity of the sea and to create a link between the indoor and outdoor space, as well as to open the living and relaxing areas to the inner courtyard and dunes
The building is characterised by clear lines and clean form. Unified geometric composition motifs are used everywhere - in the building, its interior and borders.
The functionality of the building is supplemented with a shady tree courtyard where you can relax in the arbour, have a walk in the park or have guests in the courtyard terrace.
The visual appearance of the building is designed to be simple, a transparent form for life among nature, a covered terrace is serving as a bridge between the indoors and nature.
The structure of the building plays the main organising role and the unified module system used by the enterprise „Vincents” has a significant part in its rational project allowing the specialists to finish construction works within short time.
