Residential Interior Design by Open AD
Bespoke interiors for clients in Riga, London, Moscow and counting.
Open AD sees architecture, interiors and the landscape as a holistic whole. This bespoke white perforated metal fireplace echoes the pattern of the trees in the surrounding landscape. The home's exterior features similar detailing. Photo by Maxim Kanakin.
We paired rich materials to create an elegant, muted effect in the kitchen of this Riga apartment. Home to a father and son, the apartment's design concept is based around the idea of contrast. Between generations, materials, colours, textures etc. Contrast, yet balance. Photo by Alvis Rozenbergs
We designed an apartment, which came with its very own rooftop tower. Our challenge was to find a use for the tower and integrate it into the overall apartment design. The result is an elegant room for entertaining. Rich and daring materials suit the Art Nouveau building's historical grandeur. The apartment is home to two adult gentlemen - a father and son.

This Riga apartment is located on the top two floors of a grand Art Nouveau building. It's home to two adult gentlemen - a father and son - and the interior expands on the idea of contrasts. Expressed through colour, materials and other means, the contrasts create a balanced whole. Here, light plays with dark. Fragile with robust. Rich materials like the red marble are an interpretation of masculinity in the language of design. Photographer: Alvis Rozenbergs.
The clients wished to keep things minimal at their coastal home in Pavilosta, Latvia. The garden becomes the star of the show in the living room as it "steps in" through the floor-to-ceiling length windows. Materials and colours in the low key interior are inspired by the Baltic Sea and coastal environment. The ceiling light is inspired by outdoor clothes lines, which are a common occurence in local gardens. Photo by Alvis Rozenbergs.
This home reflects the family's values. Each child has their own room, which encourages developing their own personality, creativity and skills. The furniture is entirely bespoke, designed by OpenAD and built by local carpenters in Latvia. Photo by Alvis Rozenbergs.
Playful neon accents brighten up a dark interior space dedicated to the home library. The family must pass through the space at the top of the stairs to reach their bedrooms. This encourages reading. The blue seat is positioned against a window for natural light. Together they create a comfortable and functional reading corner. Photo by Alvis Rozenbergs.
Climate permitting, rooftop terraces and balconies become an extension of the interior. A space with multiple potential purposes such as exercise, rest or outdoor cooking. We don't see these open air spaces as a separate unit; they're part of the overall home story. Photo by Maris Lapins.
Stairs keep us fit, take us from A to B and reveal new perspectives. They help us transition from space to space, both physically and mentally. Always practical, stairs can also be much more. A sculpture, statement piece, a way to express brand values or the family story. Photo: Alvis Rozenbergs. #stairdesign
Colours, textures and furniture were our key tools in the design of this family apartment in Latvia. Each design item is handselected for the particular room. Together, this brave mix creates a sense of calm and balance. Photo by Dana Ozollapa.
