Vacation Home on Easter Istland, Kaltene, Latvia.
Architect Zaigas Gailes Birojs has transformed an abandoned soviet fish factory into a beautiful modern residence. Situated on the coast of an island in the Baltic Sea, the home is a stunning example of adaptive reuse. The plan consists of three parts, the central full-height hall, a two story apartment for parents and four apartments for children. The conversion project maintained preservation of the island’s landscape and architectural features by adding the yacht harbor, and by covering the facades with rusty steel plates and sliding shutters. Wicked.
