Architects’ House

Open AD architects as Architects

A family home for four in a quiet, green Riga neighbourhood. The shape and placement of the house ensured no trees were removed from the plot and the birches are an integral part of the composition. The landscape, architecture and interior complete each other.

The structure was built offsite as a prefab. Timber is a versatile, sustainable and resilient building material and it allowed to create the tilting shape of the house.The grey-stained Baltic timber cladding has a silver patina which is complemented by the rusted metal entranceway and window surrounds.

Each window offers a glimpse into the world of this particular family, revealing their values and interests. Together they tell the family story. The children’s rooms are inspired by the pillow forts, tents and hideouts of the parents’ own youth. The library highlights the importance of books and reading to this family.
