McCann-Erickson Riga and Inspired Office in Riga, Latvia

Designed for SIA McCann Erickson-Riga and Inspired in 2010, this 1020 sqm project is located in Riga, Latvia. The architects working at the project are Open AD, Sane Tetere and Elina Tetere. It was a low budget project so the materials used are simple and some items were made using recycled materials. For example, the fourth floor features some left over timber products and items made from recycled household or office appliances. The lamps were made using high diameter pasterboard tubes.

McCann-Erikson Riga and Inspired Office are actually two separate offices located in the same building but on different floors. However, both offices were designed using the same simple materials like boards, lacquered MDF, white wall painting for the fourth floor and grey lacquered plastura for the third floor walls. The two offices are connected by stairs and they are not completely separated from each other.

But despite the simple materials and the fact that this was a low budget project, the offices still look attractive, modern and beautiful. Sometimes simplicity said more than all the decorations in the world if its used properly. Elegance and style can’t be bought. So keep that in mind when you’ll be in a situation when you have to renovate or redesigns a place without using too much money. There’s always a way.{found on archdaily}
