A family apartment in Riga inspired by the ascetic, reserved spirit of the North and the context of its building. The airy apartment is in Riga’s 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 clients imagined a light, spacious and cosy home. They appreciate the neoclassicism style. Open AD created a bespoke design with respect for the wishes and needs of the family with young children. The material palette of wood, marble, metal, textiles and glass exudes quality and respect for established, long-term solutions.

Open AD 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 demonstrates Open AD’s skills in furniture design and celebrates the high level of craftsmanship in Latvia. Open AD 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 complement the custom-made elements.
