The apartment building at 6 Tomsona Street is located in a green and quiet area within the city centre of Riga. The L-shaped seven-storey apartment building is integrated within the historic functionalist cityscape by the internationally renowned architect Zane Tetere-Šulce (Open AD).
The project stands next to a kindergarten. Several schools, a hospital and a shopping centre are all in close vicinity. Only a few minutes’ walk separates it from the Olympic sports centre, the largest sports and entertainment venue Arena Riga, as well as one of the main theatre.
The rhythms and lines of the facade complement the neighbouring building, a local cultural monument. A special atmosphere at 6 Tomsona Street will be created by artists’ studios that occupy more than a third of the building on the northern side.
Shared premises will include a bicycle parking area, storage space, green front lawn and a patio, as well as a car park (with cutting-edge car elevators) for 18 cars. Single flats and a few studios will be located on the second floor of the building. Overall, the second to seventh floor feature 25 residences – 11 apartments and 14 studios. Both open and closed balconies face the street and the patio, while inhabitants of the top floor are provided with roof terraces.
Curent state of development: design and coordination.
