About


Lauder Architects was established in 2013 by architects - Rita Laudere and Kārlis Lauders formerly known as "Lauders Architecture", alongside company's fast development it gained its current name "Lauder Architects" in 2016. Both architects had obtained great experience working in best architecture and interior offices in Latvia. Ever since we have organically grown to a powerful team of 12 professionals - architects, designers and engineers who work on small to large-scale public and private architecture and interior design projects. We are open to any challenge and are ready to find new approach and solution to given tasks.


Our main principles are:

- Respect the surrounding environment, context and scale.

- To use rational approach creating design whilst keeping in mind key aspects of sustainability.

- To involve great minds from partners and other specialists to create a particular goal-based team for every project.

For competitions we won in recent years we have received special gratitude from the jury for architecture that truly fits into its environment, has a rational plan, structure and fully accomplished object requirements.
