Ways to Make Your Home More Secure

If you are like most homeowners, home security is very important. Not only do you want your family to be safe, you also want your belongings to be safe. If you want peace of mind that your home is safe and secure, there are a few steps that you should take.

The Redevelopment of The Historic Kimmel Quarter in Riga, Latvia / by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects

Riga, the Baltic states’ largest city, will see the mostly abandoned buildings of its historic Kimmel Quarter transformed into a thriving commercial development, and Danish architectural firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects is behind the winning design to revitalize the neighbourhood.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects won a competition to design Kimmel Quarter, an 11,500-square-metre area that assumes nearly an entire city block in Riga’s Central District. Kimmel Quarter is the former home of Brewery Kimmel, a 19th century beer brewery that in its wake left an industrial complex filled with buildings that, while now mostly abandoned, are rich with history. The project called for a design that realizes the vision of a vibrant new city block with deep historic roots. Schmidt Hammer Lassen was one of eleven participants, along with firms like Henning Larsen and Zaha Hadid, invited to the open competition.
