The designing experience of architect Uģis Zābers, who is an architect also for the house under construction at Lāčplēša Street 11, already includes several successful premium objects both in Riga and Jūrmala. The architect had to deal with eclecticism, art nouveau and romanticism in few-storey construction, which is challenging for every professional. The glass, which is used in the finish of building façade, reflects the surrounding construction, provides utmost lighting, as well as spacious and light premises inside. Wooden texture in autumn colors creates coziness and a link to the former historical wooden construction on the land plot and adjacent buildings.
The newly-built building at Lāčplēša Street 11 will consist of seven over ground stories and one basement storey, which provides for 18 parking lots and two common use bike racks, as well as separate small store-rooms for the residents of the building.
28 apartments will be situated in the building from the second floor up to the seventh floor: 12 of them two-room, 11 three-room and 5 four-room. There will be six to seven apartments on each floor from the second floor up to the fifth floor of the building, three apartments – on the sixth floor and one apartment — on the seventh floor.
The area of apartments with high (3 m) ceilings will range from 46 to 250 m².
Majority of apartments in the building will have a separate terrace.
The first floor of the building will accommodate several rented-out commercial premises (shops) and a spacious and presentable front entrance hall with a fire-place and restored historical plafond, which dates back to the 60ties of the 19th century. The ornamental wooden plafond is an interesting and unusual part of the object. It was preserved from the former wooden construction on this land plot and, according to the instructions by the State Inspection for Heritage Protection, it will be integrated into the lobby hall of the building by using a complicated restoration technology. It will become a special identity of the building, which confirms that it is possible to integrate ancient and historical things into the modern architecture and revive them. There will be a work place for the building administrator (concierge) in the entrance hall.
INTERIOR AND QUALITY
Architect Uģis Zābers’s team has also designed the interior of the premises, creating a solution that is integrated into the philosophy and approach to the building façade. Equally with the first premium building of the project, high-quality finish materials and world-known manufacturers’ equipment and modern interior items will also be used in this building.
There will be high-quality oak or walnut parquet floors (PARADOR, BAUWERK), designer tile collections will be used in the sanitary premises and kitchens, the walls will be decorated with designer wallpapers, high-quality painting and ornamentally veneered wooden panels.
Toilet facilities will have the plumbing and equipment of the best manufacturers in the world Kartell by Laufen, Kohler, Villeroy&Boch, Hansgrohe/Axor.
