The Philosophers’ Residence is created for those who hold safety philosophy close to their hearts, inspiring to find peace and proper relaxation, for those who choose an active way of life in the Business Capital without prejudice that such city can bring on.
A library full of books in Residence’s hall, a basketball court, terraces for Ping-Pong and Novus tables, 2 children’s playgrounds, a place for meditative relaxation with a view on the Philosophers’ Alley and shores of the ancient Daugava, and no cars inside the territory – this residence of modern philosophers will reflect the spirit of times. Located in the centre of Metropolis on vast landscaped Philosophers’ Residence terraces, its residents can dedicate themselves to thoughts and contemplations on the most spectacular Old Town landscapes of church broach spires and Riga Castle. From three viewpoints appears river Daugava beneath the Vanšu Bridge crossing it, low-rise Ķīpsala and Pārdaugava with its miniature houses sinking into green gardens, the future “City” of the capital of Latvia with its first high-rise Saules Akmens, and Ztowers.
An active, productive life and appropriate relaxation – two aspects of life which should be retained in harmony, therefore the environment of the project is of a particular significance. Being deferential to the most beautiful views that historically appeared on the Philosophers’ Alley, we erect the building 12 metres above the ground. The Philosophers’ Residence as though floats above the ground, offering a view on the timeless nature.
In memory of water reservoirs that used to were situated in the neighbouring territories, we will create an artificial pond in the centre of the landscaped garden.
Territory of the project will be made as a recreation area for its residents. Territory will not be available for motor vehicles, as separate underground parking lot will be created. Alley of 300-year-old oaks, through which the nationalists of the 18th century loved to walk, is titled in their honour – the Philosophers’ Alley, and will be carefully preserved and maintained.
Primary benefit of the Philosophers’ Residence – views from windows, spacious balconies and landscaped terraces for undisturbed thoughts and contemplations on timeless values…
