About House in Jurmala
Harmonizing Architecture with Nature
The building’s design takes cues from the surrounding landscape and local climate, nestling among centuries-old pines with a south-facing facade. The textured concrete walls and picturesque scenery blend seamlessly, creating a unique composition.
Integrating Indoor and Outdoor Spaces
A tree-filled patio penetrates the heart of the house, separating the bedrooms from the communal areas. The building itself consists of two distinct volumes with different heights: the lower volume houses the children’s and guest rooms, while the upper one contains the living room, dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom.
Dynamic Design Features
The central public area contrasts with the monumental volumes of the sleeping quarters, as the cantilevered roof and vertical fireplace tube add a sense of dynamism to the space.
