Renovation of the façade of the SSE Riga building
This summer the façade of our spectacular building will undergo renovation works. These will be finished just in time for SSE Riga’s 25th Anniversary celebration this autumn.
The renovation will focus on restoring the building’s historical sculptures, primarily on the 6th and 7th floors, which have deteriorated over time and are in critical need of repair.
The SSE Riga building with its blue-and-white facade was designed in 1905 by the famous architect Mikhail Eisenstein, and is one of Latvia’s Art Nouveau pearls.
To undertake the work, SSE Riga has engaged Celtiks SIA, a company which has restored a broad portfolio of Art Nouveau buildings in Riga, including the National Gallery of Art, the Ministry of Culture, and the Swedish Embassy.
SSE Riga would be honoured to accept donations for the façade repair. These can be made to the following account:
