Ģertrūdes iela 23



Ģertrūdes iela 23 is one of my favorite buildings in Riga (it has 2 "sisters" - similar buildings in the centre). It is considered as a predecessor of Functionalism style, although it was built in 1909 (architect Eižens Laube), in National romanticism (Art Nouveau) style. The building is freshly renovated and the original black color is changed to white. Here you can see couple of years before:

  1. It makes me so happy to see such beautyful renovation.
    Riga have so many unique buildings and luckily many of them are renovated instead of being demolished for new neutral builings.
