Latvian designer wins American architecture prize

A Latvian interior designer has won an industry award in the United States.

Designer Santa Meikulāne won in one of the categories of the "American Architecture Prize 2017" (not to be confused with the similarly-named American Architecture Awards or American Prize for Architecture) for the interior design of a residence called Villa A.

The winning project was among 7 winners in the Houses Interior category.

The description of the project, which is a white and black geometric holiday home, says it was created "with maximum respect for the unique relief of the ancient Gauja river valley".

The award will be presented on October 27th in New York, USA.

The project for the private house was created by lolot design and OutofBox architecture which has already won the Architizer A + Awards International Contest and Design Competition.

"We live in a global world and creativity without borders is a new reality today. Therefore, everything that is top in Latvia must be created with the awareness that it is good enough for the world. And it's not about weight, it's important public buildings or private homes, because the environment is equally important at both macro and micro levels," said Meikulāne in response to the award.
