St Pavil's Lutheran church | Svētā Pāvila luterāņu baznīca (Deglava iela 1)



 Saint Pavil's Lutheran church. St Pavil's church is a central dominante in Avoti area (south-eastern part of centre). It's been built in 1887, in English Gothic (apparently, Neo-Gothic) style. The church in Riga context is interesting with it's location - on the end point of several streets, such planning can be more often observed in Western European cities. Also the architecture - English NeoGothic - is rather unusual for Riga. Interesting that the church was a co-work of architects father and the son - Gustav Hilbig and Hermann Hilbig. Gustav died short before (in the same year) the church was finished - and so his son finished the father's work.

  Svētā Pāvila luterāņu baznīca. Svētā Pāvila baznīca ir centrālā dominante Avotu un Grīziņkalna apkaimē. Interesanti, ka tā ir kā radiālais galapunkts vairākām ielām - šāds plānojums vairāk novērots Rietumeiropā. Arī arhitektūras stils - Neogotika - Rīgas baznīcām ir visai neraksturīgs. Interesanti, ka baznīca ir arhitektu tēva un dēla kopdarbs - to projektējis arhitekts Gustavs Hilbigs, kurš baznīcas iesvētīšanu diemžēl nepaspēja sagaidīt, jo aizgāja mūžībā tajā pašā gadā, kad tā tika uzcelta - 1887. gadā. Pēc viņa nāves darbu turpināja un pabeidza dēls arhitekts Hermanis Hilbigs.
