2 Sisters House

Construction year: 2007
Address: Krievupes iela 16b, Langstiņi | RIGA | Latvia
Latitude/Longitude: 57.00697, 24.33801

This cute house near the Langstini Lake is very interesting in many ways. It was designed by Latvian studio NRJA Architecture for two related families that wanted to live together and yet still have some privacy. The house is made up of two independent residences connected by glass hallway on the first floor. The private facilities are upstairs – the windows there are placed in a way to open view to the lake, but hide the inhabitants of both wings from each other. The second floor rests on concrete piles, providing an extensive outdoor space, perfect for a patio or a car park. The most obvious feature that makes this house look inspiring and beautiful, especially in the show, is its bright red facade.
