2. Ģertrūdes street 23. Ģertrūdes 23 is one of my favorite buildings in Riga (it has 2 "sisters" - similar buildings in the centre). It is considered as a predecessor of Functionalism style, although it was built in 1909 (architect Eižens Laube), in National romanticism (Art Nouveau) style. The building is renovated about a year ago and the original black color has been changed to white. On the second photo you can see how bad it looked couple of years ago.

3. Barona street 49. Building on Barona and Stabu streets corner (Barona iela 49, built in 1911) is also named as one of predecessors of Functionalism style in Riga, although basically it belongs to Vertical Art Nouveau. It has got a renovation recently.

4. Elizabetes street 31

5. Elizabetes street 21a. Some buildings in Riga are being renovated even when they don't need it very much, while some others screams for renovation for years and nothing happens. This building, in Elizabetes 21a was recently a few years ago but as you see in the second picture, before it wasn't that bad at all. Just a quarter away, there stands more beautiful building which is abandoned and falls apart...

About the building: Elizabetes street 21a was built as a tenement house in 1910 (architect: Mārtiņš Ņukša). This neoclassicism+early modernism building is said to be one of the first pioneers of it's style, which was further developed a decade later with buildings in Poland, Czech Republic and elsewhere.

6. Stabu street 9. Some buildings are renovated also by municipality, mostly schools. This is such a building on Stabu street 9, built in 1904 and was one of the first "rational" Art Nouveau buildings in the city. It's located in quiet centre place where traffic isn't intensive, nice and calmer area.

Cool video showing how they are restoring the 60-year old facade of Chicago's 1 Prudential Plaza.


And it surely makes a difference. They are renovating the lobbies and adding a restaurant on top.
