The “Origo” new building at Satekles iela 2b, Riga including the “Origo One” business centre, won 1st place in the “Latvian Construction Prize of the Year 2020” contest in the nomination “New Public Building”. The "Origo" multifunctional commercial centre, which was expanded last year, is one of the most modern shopping centres in Latvia. The project developer is Linstow Baltic.

Andis Kublacovs (Andis Kublačovs), the Project Director of Linstow Baltic: "This award is a confirmation of the excellent cooperation of architects, designers, builders and customers. Implementing the “Origo” expansion project, we focused on human well-being, environmentally friendly and sustainable technical solutions, as well as the organic integration of the object into the urban environment - one of the most intensive and interesting quarters of Riga.” 

“We entrusted the development of the interior design of the "Origo" new building, including the "Origo One" business centre, to SIA xcelsior - the winner of the Latvian Designers' Union Award of the Year, an architecture and interior design company with 25 years of international experience. We had a great cooperation with the project managers and design authors Arturs Martinsons (Artūrs Martinsons) and Zane Straume, and we are especially pleased that the work is appreciated not only by our partners, but also by industry professionals,” admits Evija Majevska, the Commercial Director of Linstow Baltic and s/c Origo.

Comfortable premises for trade and service providers are located on the first three floors of the “Origo” new building, while the “Origo One” business centre with innovative Class A offices is located on the top three floors of the building. Offices in the “Origo One” have been set up by such companies as Narvesen & Caffeine, Hili Properties, Colliers International, LETA, TVNET Group, as well as Optibet/Enlabs Group and TheSoul Publishing independent digital content studio will soon open their doors in the building.

The developer of the project “Linstow Baltic” has also set up its office in “Origo One”.

Evija Majevska, the Commercial Director of Linstow Baltic: “One of strategic goals of “Linstow Baltic” is sustainability, so muted combinations of grey and bluish-green tones have therefore been integrated in the brand and office interior, which not only make staying and working in this interior pleasant, but also symbolize sustainability and synergy between the city and the urban environment. Class A office premises with a total area of 11,500 m2 are located in the “Origo One” business centre. Despite changes in work organization habits over the past year, demand for high-end office buildings remains high. Currently, only 1 office with an area of 435 m2 is available for rent.” 

T/c "Origo" offers a wide range of local and international brands and is easily accessible to both those traveling to the city by public transport as well as those by car or bicycle.
