The New World

If we called every HOME a home, we wouldn't differ from people who lived at the beginning of our era in dwellings countersunk in the ground, where the entrance also served as a flue. There was heat and a slight touch of light. Perhaps thats enough for somebody. However, there's always some Columbus among us who longs for something more.

You already know what happened then.

On October 12th, 1492, Columbus saw INDIA, which turned out to be the New World.

INDIA is an abbreviation of Intelligent Design Interior and Architecture - i.e. all the main fields of work of our architecture office.

Established in May 2004, INDIA started as a team of three young architects and soon became one of the most promising architecture offices in Latvia. In just our first year, we were nominated for the annual Latvian Architecture Prize with the competition project – a residential house on Strelnieku 7. And we won this award a few years later with Parventa Library in Ventspils.

Over the years, INDIA won numerous competitions and was the subject of publications in all the major newspapers and magazines.
A list of selected projects, awards and publications can be seen below.
