STUDIO ARHIS ARNIS KLEINBERGS
"Sky" Shopping centre, Riga - Lettonia
This shopping centre stands out for the original "pixel-like" colour composition that completely covers the ceramic floor, obtained using small size tiles (30x30). The same pattern dresses the upper part of the windows and the "buffered" walls, and also constitutes the facade main architectural distinguishing element. The complex tile laying pattern alternates monochrome surfaces that play on different shades of grey, to multicolour zones with carefully studied colour matches.
