Now and before: Cēsu street 23

Good surprise awaited me in Cēsu street recently - large and charming pre-war tenement house which previously falled apart is now renovated, modernized and waiting it's new inhabitants. I'm happy for every historical building which gets renovated in Riga.

This building was built in 1908, and it represents the so-called "rational" Art Nouveau which is more minimalistic but elegant anyway. The architect is Konstantīns Pēkšēns which in overall has designed >250 (!!) buildings in Riga.
