Elizabeth

The building Elizabeth is located at 3 Elizabetes Street, the Quiet centre the most respectable part of Riga. The Quiet centre means an excellent infrastructure along with rich historical heritage and convenient transport links; at the same time it means the tranquillity and ecology of parks, guarding this part of the centre from the rush of the rest of the city.

High-class professionals of the leading companies in the field have united for Elizabeth project quality implementation, engaging their vast experience essential for successful realization of such a sophisticated vision. The purpose of the project was to restore the facade, main staircase and main entrance to its original, historical appearance. Almost all the details of facade survived, which simplified the restoration work. The house is an example of late Eclecticism with tremendous external decoration. A bright and rich facade, which reveals the aesthetics of Renaissance, also presents elements inherent in Baroque, Empire and even Art Nouveau. A variety of architectural elements were used in the design of the facade, such as pediments, columns and turrets. The decor of the pilasters and their capitals, balcony railings and turret finials show significant influence from Baroque. Despite the use of elements of different styles, the building has beautiful proportions. The two-toned facade enhances the expressiveness of the sculptures. The restrained colour scheme (a combination of yellow and white) gives an extra volume to the decor, allowing the relief of the facade to be revealed in the most effective manner.

House Elizabeth is located in a unique part of the city featuring the harmonious co-existence of a modern business centre and architectural masterpieces of the past centuries. Monuments of architectural importance, buildings of embassies, diplomatic residences and galleries are surrounded by the dense greenery of centuries-old parks. Most of the buildings in this area are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
