The multifunctional office building on Miera Street in Riga, Latvia, has a prominent urban location at an intersection of four streets and is thus treated like a local landmark. The minimalistic form draws attention to the corner facade. By reducing the area of the first floor the building acknowledges the importance of the street as a focal point of the urban fabric.
The corner accent connects with the roof, ensuring the finality and unity of the form and respects the rooflines of the surrounding streets. The proposed building is in harmony with the planned project on the opposite corner, not competing with it, but rather enriching the urban composition of the site. The distinct form of the building completes the perspective views to Brīvības and Miera Streets.
The constructive solution provides a clear, flexible layout without any columns – the after-tension concrete floors are supported by strips of reinforced concrete walls. The constructive stability is ensured by a clear and definite vertical communications core. The facade employs a module system that ensures an economic industrial production of a high quality.
