Before and after

Some buildings in Riga are being renovated even when they don't need it very much, while some others screams for renovation for years and nothing happens. This building, in Elizabetes 21a was recently renovated, but as you see in the picture below, before it wasn't bad at all. Just a quarter away, there stands much more beautiful building which is abandoned and falls apart...

About the building: Elizabetes street 21a was built as a tenement house in 1910 (architect: Mārtiņš Ņukša). This neoclassicism+early modernism building is said to be one of the first pioneers of it's style, which was further developed a decade later with buildings in Poland, Czech Republic and elsewhere.
