Skonto Būve will reconstruct the sanatorium building, making it into a bright and modern guest house


Skonto Būve has started works on reconstruction of the sanatorium building in Jūrmala, Ērgļu iela 2 into a guest house. The project includes reconstruction of the existing building, which was built in 1975 as a sanatorium building, into a guest house. The sanatorium building was empty for many years and it will now get a fresh look — a fancy architecture solution, thus becoming a modern guest house in Jūrmala seaside dune zone. Specialists appreciate both visual solution and functionality of the building. 

Height of the building will be 12 m — 3.5 floors. Total area of the building — 4700 m2. New connections to all main engineering networks communications and a new street lighting is planned in the project as well.

The new guest house will also be supplemented by a pool with a special glass roof that can be opened, therefore, in case of good weather, the visitors of the pool will be able to swim and enjoy sun in open-air.

It is planned to build a parking space in the basement floor of the building.

Within the project it is also planned to reconstruct the historical pedestrian bridge uniting the dune across Ērgļu iela and to improve the surrounding territory and green zone.  

The design of the building was developed by the French architects’ group Sarl Ciel Rouge Creation and it was adapted in Latvia by MA Design. For development of technical solutions, Italian architect Fabrizio Gallinaro was invited. 

Customer of the project: SIA SEAGULL INVESTMENTS. It is planned to finish the works in 2018.
