History and vision
Developer – “RA Invest”
SIA “RA Invest” is an experienced real estate developer company, operating in the commercial real estate sector for more than 20 years.
Our goal for “Grīziņdārzs” is to offer businesses a multifunctional and inspiring workspace that enables growth, nurtures creativity, and allows for preserving a balance between professional achievements and personal well-being.
Architects – “Open Architecture Design”
While working on the “Grīziņdārzs” project, we particularly considered highlighting the distinctive features of the buildings and the territory. Firstly, this is a unique location. The area is situated under two bridges, offering a rare viewpoint on the territory, and allowing most people to see it directly from above. Due to this rare perspective, our proposed design separates two segments — the historical and the newly designed — dividing the overall image into two parts and forming architecture with horizontal contrasts. Furthermore, the newly built structures stand out, creating a rooftop landscape and unique offices with green roof terraces, bringing greenery back to the city. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, the effective reorganization of traffic flow has transformed the previous parking lot into a recreation area for people, also providing necessary space for vehicles deeper into the territory. Consequently, the landscaped courtyard can be used for events and as a meeting point for the local Grīziņkalns community. It is another area that we have created not only for a specific project but for all residents of Rīga, especially those within the neighbourhood, enhancing the overall development of the capital. ”
