The “Goldingena Residence” was designed with the help of renowned architect Reinholds Georgs Šmēlings, who designed countless public and residential buildings in Riga. The construction was completed in 1912, marking one of the most important stages of development of Riga as a city.
The building houses a total of 36 one-to-four bedroom apartments on various floors. All the apartments have high-quality, fully finished interiors. The framework of the building consists of brick and clay mortar walls. The lower floors are fitted with double-glazed PVC windows, while the top floor boasts Velux wood/aluminium windows and French balconies. Each apartment is to be fitted with separate heat, water, and electricity consumption meters.
Residents will be able to purchase storage space in the basement level and a parking space in a locked courtyard with room for 30 cars. An elevator and a playground will be constructed for the resident’s convenience, and security cameras will be installed throughout the property.
Great for young people as well as families with children
History buffs are sure to know that Goldingen is the historical name for the town of Kuldīga, just as they know that there is a street in Āgenskalns named after the charming town. The location of the street within Āgenskalns is excellent – surrounded by lush greenery in the summer, and peaceful and quiet compared to the busy Slokas Street not far away. The street is characterised by historical private and low-rise residential buildings typical of Āgenskalns.
Local weekend favourites of the residents of Kuldīgas Street include the creative Kalnciems Quarter, the Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia, Uzvaras Park, Māras Pond, the Daugava Promenade, Nordeķu Park and Dzegužkalns’ Hill. Cyclists can enjoy easy and safe routes to both the city centre and to the resort town of Jūrmala.
Few places in Riga are home to as many architectural masterpieces as Āgenskalns, and “Goldingena Residences” is top among them. The apartments are perfect for anyone looking for unconventional, original solutions, which are lacking in typical new construction projects. The uniqueness of the building is expressed not only in its historical influences, but also in the layout of the apartments. Almost every apartment has an original, unique layout, and two apartments even have a separate entrance from the courtyard. In addition, some apartments have a window in the bathroom, and there are spacious storage facilities with exposed brick walls, reminiscent of a wine cellar.
Āgenskalns is home to diverse architectural styles from various eras: Classicism, Eclecticism, Art Nouveau, and National Romanticism, along with examples of Soviet and contemporary architecture. Kuldīgas Street itself embodies peace and harmony and is an excellent choice for Riga residents who have been dreaming of life in Āgenskalns.
