An original design house in Marupe, having won international recognition. The author of the project is the architect Zane Tetere and her architectural bureau famous in Latvia and abroad.
Construction of the house was completed in 2009, and its originality and uniqueness even captured the attention of the creators of the heading Great Homes & Destinations of the newspaper The New York Times in 2011. The newspaper noted that the architect drew inspiration from Japanese design and farms of Latvia while creating the exterior of the house.
The dark exterior of the house perfectly blends in with the landscape of a velvety green lawn, Japanese cherry-trees, pebble footpaths, and large terraces. The Japanese influence is also sensed in the interior of the house where light, warmth and spaciousness dominate.
Top-quality original materials were used in construction, decoration and interior of the house. The house is proud of its SPA area with a Turkish steam bath. The unique peculiarity of the house allows its owners to bring out their taste and individual character!
The façade of the house is covered with gray pine-tree panels, and the imposing black steel front door seems to invite to a contemporary art museum. In the sitting-room, four white columns stand out against the polished concrete floor of deep anthracite color, complemented by a decorative stripe of light pebbles, while the middle of the sitting-room is accented by original design leather sofas. Kitchen area is playfully spacious and functional.
The interior enjoys designer lamps, chairs and bar stools, kitchen and four bathrooms arrange corian surface furniture, other furniture and wallpapers are custom-made exclusively for this house. The house comprises a vast sitting-room with kitchen area, three bedrooms including bathrooms, an additional guest room, SPA area, and utility rooms. Despite the spaciousness and large windows, the maintenance costs are surprisingly low - even during the hardest winter frost the costs are much lower than that for homes of comparable size. This efficiency is achieved through smartly used ground source heat pump and southern facing windows.
The house is connected to the district cold water supply heated with the help of the local ground source heat pump; there is a local biological sewage system, but it is possible to connect the house to the district sewerage system as well. Architectural bureau «Open AD» - http://www.openad.lv
