RĪGA | DnB NORD Office Building | 40.60m | 12fl | Completed





Plot of land for the Bank's office building is situated on a corner of the Block No.15 in Riga, Skanstes Street. The concept of the urban solution is to emphasize the block corner, to make it clear and sharp. It is important for the spatial system of the block and for the whole district (crossing spaces, street spaces or inner yard spaces). The proposal of the sketch forms the future space of Skanstes Street and also marks its crossing with the planned street.
The proposed building consists of two separate volumes connected with the unit of vertical junctions. The whole composition is united using one roof slab on the top of the building. Free area under the roof creates a new type of space. It is called "half inside" space. The succession: outside space - "half inside" space - inside space, makes fluent entrance into the building. The protected "half inside" entrance area makes the building act friendlier to customers and employees. The silhouette of the building complies with the silhouette and scale of the building proposal for the whole block, does not rise up the 42 m of height and retains a sharp top edge.

Project Name: DnB NORD Office Building
Height: 11fl | 40.6 m
Construction dates: 2008 - 2010
Architect: Audrius Ambrasas www.ambrasas.lt

Cool design!

A building i could see done in the Barcode complex in Oslo. The whole surrounding complex behind DnB NORD looks interesting too.

This could be the best seen so far:


Don't have visualisation for whole Skanste Street district.

I only mentioned grey cause it would make smaller contrast between building and the enviroment around it, but maybe black is better...
Yea definetely.
Black is better.
