Solar panels are installed on the roof of the building.
Aļesja Kirčenko, Deputy Head of SEB Global Services in Riga:
“When we started this project in the summer of 2021, we set our ambition to create GUSTAVS as one of the most modern, inspiring and sustainable office buildings in Riga. Now we can proudly say that that we have accomplished this mission. GUSTAVS is an activity-based office with an open layout and varios work environments, giving colleagues the opportunity to choose the most convenient place for their tasks. The new building will become a platform that will allow us to continue our growth trajectory, while paying a lot of attention to the well-being of our employees”.
In addition to comfortably furnished workspaces in the amount of 11 000 square meters, the new building also offers to employees a gym, a lunch restaurant, game rooms, parents’ and childrens’ rooms, a room for meditation and rooms for short nap breaks, a library and a roof terrace. To take care of employee’s well-being, a modern air quality and climate control system as well as biodynamic lighting system have been installed in the building.
An inspiring atmosphere in GUSTAVS will be created by a collection of artworks by the new-generation Latvian artists, created by art curator Auguste Petre. The collection includes over 30 works of art – paintings, drawings, photographs, art objects as well as digital and textile works of art.
