apartment hotel Red Ice LEDUS (ICE) is NRJA's winning proposal for the architecture competition in Riga for the development of an 893 sq. m. urban land plot on 40a Kr. Barona Street. The site is located in the territory of a cultural monument of State significance - Riga City historic centre which is part of the protection zone of a UNESCO World Heritage site. The site is on the corner of a block, enclosed by two busy streets. The design process was suspended due to various economic circumstances and was resumed at the end of 2013. To respect the surrounding context, the color scheme of the facade was changed and the amount of glass panes in the facades was reduced. RED ICE emerges. RED ICE was initially planned as an apartment building. As a result of multiple modifications it was redesigned as an apartment hotel with a reception and a restaurant on the ground floor and a kitchen and technical premises in the basement.
