SHH was commissioned by a Latvian developer to master-plan and design a huge-scale, multi-purpose development based around an existing sports arena in the capital city of Riga. The scope of the new ‘Riga Ring’ development spanned retail and leisure facilities; a nightclub; bars; a casino; theatre spaces and a four star hotel and serviced apartments and was proposed as a catalyst for the regeneration of the surrounding area. SHH’s striking scheme included a hotel wrapped around the upper layer of the arena, with landscaped pedestrian concourses linking to retail units and subterranean parking. SHH also developed the identity for the scheme and a promotional brochure aimed at potential retail tenants, as well as a website and a promotional movie, shown at leading international property event MIPIM in Cannes.
