Summer Platform
Riga, Latvia, year 2021

Summer Platform is designed as the largest pop-up event terrace in Latvia. Its shape is designed with reference to the adjacent historic Hanzas Platform building with a distinctly long volume and a gabled roof. The Summer Platform is organized on several levels and is built as a light structure from scaffolding constructions with a timber finish. It has five zones: a lounge area, a dining area, a bar, a leeward panel area and a stage. It is separated from the nearby Pulkveža Brieža Street by wind shields, which create an environment where it is pleasant to stay in different weather conditions.
