Annvil in collaboration with Space Group has won the competition for Dzintars cosmetics factory reconstruction in Riga, Latvia.
The design concept is based on a sustainable design approach. It has a strong focus on social sustainability, adaptive reuse, and multifunctional solutions. “By reusing the existing structure and materials of the building, we believe that a design concept based on a circular economy approach can effectively balance social, economical, and environmental aspects. Social sustainability combines physical design with a social world design—infrastructure that supports social and cultural life, social amenities, community engagement, and a place for people and places to evolve naturally,” explains Annvil founder Anna Bates.
