Public buildings (cultural, educational, religious buildings; healthcare and medical institutions; sports buildings)


At the heart of Ziedlejas is the Pirts (Latvian sauna) culture and its relevance in a rushed, urban and tech-infused era. The wellness resort is developing as a place to escape from the crowds, recharge and connect to nature. By combining a Latvian tradition with heritage-inspired interpretations, international experience and spiritual practices, Ziedlejas illustrates the positive aspects of globalisation.

Each building is self-sufficient and delivers a scenographic experience, yet is also an intrinsic part of the Ziedlejas story. Currently, three Pirts and four Glass rooms are complete.
