Initially planned as a holiday house, at the end of the design process – socially active family’s living house complex at the River Venta near Kuldiga.

The place drags in to live there.

8 BLACKS is a modern approach for traditional living complex in Kurzeme adopting the archetypal cross-section as a common element for all buildings. Union of traditional and modern in the image of the house entail sense of inheritance and belonging at the same time providing the necessary comfort for active living.

Expressive nature of the terrain – a swift river, remarkable relief, wind – defined the minimalist form of buildings; they do not compete with nature.
