OUTOFBOX Architecture is with Katerina Smirnova.

Katja was responsible for all the beautiful renderings in our competition proposals, while Irma was our intern for two years. But here at the office, we still have an unanswered question - who is Jose??? So, if you want to be our Jose, send your CV + portfolio. Yes, we're hiring 😉

Vastint Latvia 2017. gada maija beigās izsludināja arhitektūras metu konkursu ar uzaicinātiem dalībniekiem „Biroju ēku ar komercplatībām pirmajā stāvā jaunbūves Antonijas ielā 17 un 21, Rīgā” ar mērķi iegūt pilsētbūvnieciski un arhitektoniski iespējami labāko projekta priekšlikuma skici norādītiem apbūves gabaliem Magdelēnas kvartālā.

Noteiktajā laikā 24. jūlijā tika iesniegti 6 darbi. Izskatot tos, žūrija vienojās, ka ir viens labākais projekts un pārējie uz tā fona neizceļas. Tā arhitektūras kvalitāte visprecīzāk atspoguļo pasūtītāja uzdevumu un visveiksmīgāk iederas Rīgas vēsturiskajā centrā un bagātinās Magdelēnas kvartāla kopskatu.

Žūrijā strādāja: Latvijas Arhitektu savienības pārstāvis, arhitekts Andris Kronbergs, VKPAI vadītājs, arhitekts Juris Dambis, Rīgas pilsētas arhitekta biroja direktora vietniece, arhitekte Regīna Bula, Igaunijas Arhitektu savienības biedrs, arhitekts Markus Kaasik, pasūtītāja pārstāvji Romāns Astahovs, Urmas Pastarus un Thomas Hattig.

Rezultātā par pirmās vietas ieguvēju atzīts darbs ar devīzi XXX000 - arhitektu birojs OUTOFBOX, Pēteris Bajārs, Guna Priede, Janis Aufmanis, Arta Lace, Luīze Elizabete Rukšāne (draudzīgi piepalīdzot - Katerina Smirnova ar vizualizācijām, Toms Loris, Pēteris Švēde - makets). Otrā un trešā vieta netika piešķirtas.

We didn't win this one. But the jury's verdict was all about how innovative, a little bit provocative, fresh and outstanding our proposal is - all the qualities the others missed. Sometimes that is enough.

If we called every home a HOME, we wouldn't differ from people who lived at the beginning of our era in dwellings countersinked in the ground, where entrance also served as a flue. There was a heat and a slight touch of light. Perhaps someone is sufficient with that. However, there's always some Columbus among us who longs for something more. You already know what happened then.

On the 12th of October in 1492, Columbus saw INDIA, which turned out to be the NEW WORLD. Coincidences don’t exist!

Exactly 13 years ago INDIA was born to create IN.telligent D.esign I.nteriors A.rchitecture. In 2012 we reborn as OUTOFBOX. Happy Birthday, colleagues, friends and our families! And many years to come!
