Drupas House of Ruins in Saka, Latvia by NRJA

As the winner of the Gran Prix for the Latvian Architecture Prize 2005, this Drupas House employs a smart and eco-friendly system to built a residence. It uses an existing structure to hide, in both landscape and against the strong winds, creating a new habitable interior.

The house provides both, modern life comfort and quietness of the nature. Organised in one level, it also contains a small courtyard and a spacious roof terrace for watching the sea and surrounding meadows.
