Yesterday, on 25 August, the winners of the competition “Best Buildings of 2021 in Latvia” were awarded. Accolades were received by the Art Nouveau pearls managed by SIA “Rīgas namu pārvaldnieks” – buildings at Alberta iela 2 and Strēlnieku iela 1B.
The Art Nouveau pearl at Alberta iela 2 was designed by architect Mikhail Eisenstein and restored last year as part of UNESCO world heritage. This is an excellent restoration of Art Nouveau, excellently executed, with great work by the architects, designers, and builders.
The façade of the building at Strēlnieku iela 1B was restored and illuminated in 2021, with the apartment owners receiving municipal co-financing for the preservation of cultural heritage. The building’s architect used the colours, and the basement space with light hatches and fixtures in a very successful manner.
We thank the panel for their praise! It inspires us to do even more.
