The conversion of former breweries into offices, skyscrapers, public plazas, hotels and more seems to be a common occurrence in the architectural world as of late. The overall rustic feel of predominantly red brick heritage buildings is transformed into repurposed complexes for community engagement and housing. Danish practice Schmidt Hammer Lassen has been tasked with one such project of creating offices, a hotel and a public plaza with a gym, spa, cafe, food court and other community facilities.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen is basing its renovation proposal on the existing construction and layout of a former brewery that operated during the 1800s. With a focus on preserving key historic features, the new community-oriented project is bound to breathe new life into the Central District of Riga, Latvia.
