Initially built as a residential home and then repurposed as a boutique hotel, the building features 11 individually designed rooms overlooking the Old Town of Riga.
The focus of the interior is on the lighting and harmonic composition of the space. The initial architecture of the building had too many twists, turns and corners, and was too complicated for dwellers’ complete comfort, so it was physically and optically replanned, simplified and made more agreeable to the human eye. To create a space that is and feels light at every time of day, in every weather, several lighting scenarios were developed. The interior is modern and monochrome, with each of the building’s six floors executed in a different tonality, yet it also features monochromized architectural features in a Neoclassical style in appreciation of the historic location of the hotel.
The laconic yet very intensive interior of the St. Petrus restaurant, located on the first two floors of the building, creates a perfect stage for dining and socializing. It also sets the tone for all the upper floors of the hotel.
