Riga , Latvia
At the heart of Riga in Latvia is the Stradini Hospital, offering in- and outpatient care in the city as well as serving an essential role as a teaching hospital. Designed in collaboration with Latvian architects NAMS and Sarma & Norde, the building is focused around creating a beneficial experience for staff and patients alike, and was awarded 2nd prize in the Latvian Architecture Award 2018. The striking red exterior cladding defines the public face of the building as welcoming, warm and dynamic, while the interior is focused around a light and airy atrium. With soft, sensuous curved balconies giving the space a sunny and inclusive feel, the atrium has a powerful emotional action, creating an atmosphere of openness that extends beyond the visual and hopefully fosters an atmosphere of wellbeing. World-leading GROHE products are specified in the step-free accessible bathrooms, with innovative Eurosmart Cosmopolitan E infrared basin mixers offering hygienic, hands-free operation and Skate Cosmopolitan walls plates completing the seamless and easy-to-maintain finish.
