Vilhelma Nami, Part II. A building complex
Vilhelma Nami is an exclusive apartment building complex in Old Town Riga, located on Miesnieku Street 13, 15, and 17. All buildings are listed as architectural monuments of national significance. These houses were built as warehouses in the 17th and 18th century – this can be noted in the unique architectural form of the buildings. The complex acquired its present name in honor of entrepreneur Vilhelms Hatorps who built the first buildings on Miesnieku Street in the 15th century. Respecting the historical heritage, we did a little research into the history of Miesnieku Street and its buildings. Miesnieku Street got its name because of the slaughterhouse situated right on the street. To distance ourselves from this part of the history, we emphasize leading people to a specific vision – the future, not the past. The goal is – to create an environment that promotes inner harmony and well-being. It’s essential that the individual does not appear as a piece of furniture on a background of the interior, but fits into the environment naturally. The historical heritage will provide a steady basis for modern interior architecture that uses light-reflecting materials and tones. We emphasized artificial lighting and the latest technology trends in engineering.
There are three types of apartments in this complex: family apartments, couple apartments, pāris + dzīvoklis.
