“The plan of the vacation home has now three partitions: a full-height main hall in the centre, a two-storey apartment for the parents at one end and four two-storey apartments for the children, each with a distinct bathroom, at the other end of the building. From the massive block that it was, now the edifice is open and transparent due to the new, large windows and glass doors that are of the same dimensions as the windows. They all are equipped with sliding shutters, made of corten steel plates identically with the façade of the building”
A timeless environmentally friendly island retreat vacation home, for a family with children on the incredible shores of Latvia.
