House on Līves street

A young family approached us with the need for creating a comfortable, beautiful house within a green suburb of Riga.

The challenge of the project was to transform the peculiarity of an L-shaped plot into a spatial quality.

The volume of the house consists of 4 blocks each having a roof pitched into a different direction thus adding various characters to the spaces inside the house.
