Here are selected some of my most important study and contest works. These projects are attempts to find a sustainable solution for different kind of present and future issues, to deal with the context, to create a functionally effective, aesthetically valuable space, which would form new identity and quality of the site. The typology of works ranges from small scale architectural design objects to complex urban development masterplans. Architecture and urban planning, in my opinion, is an art of making frame for life, a vessel, where the life occurs. Like a cup for tea. The cup should direct our attention to the taste, so we can enjoy it.

KIPSALA URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL Riga, LV Kipsala is one of Riga city`s islands. Due to it`s location close to the city center, it plays an important role in Riga further development. The South part of Kipsala is proposed as skyscraper business quarter , but destiny of the North Kipsala territory is still under the question. The aim of the project was to analyze the character, scale, environmental context, strengths and weaknesses of the site, and, in correspondence to this facts â€“ to create territory`s future development concept proposal. The project was made in three levels: 1. urban situation analyzing, 2. urban scale development proposal, 3. detailed architectural projects of one housing quarter.
Date: 2011 Type: urban and strategic planning
One of the biggest Kipsala island`s values is water. Historically this land was in close connection with the sea, it was sailors` place of residence, water transport was given a priority. The closeness of water was taken as a starting point for the concept of Kipsala urban development.

TERRACED HOUSES IN KIPSALA Kipsala sustainable neighbourhood Date: 2011 Team: Olga Trebuhina Type: architectural design
Terraced houses design project is a try to find contemporary architectural form, that would fit the site`s context, scale and density. Sunlight studies had been made to develop psychologically the most comfortable interior space. Designed as an energy efficient house, it is small and compact, south faces of the building are covered with photovoltaic film to produce electricity. Vegetation is integrated with the exterior for microclimate control.

The aim of the project was to develop new positive-oriented, open, inviting space, that would become a starting point for abandoned and dilapidated territory revitalization.
Optimistic future prospects are the symbolic metaphor of this building, because Andrejsala (Andrej-island) has a big potential for further development. This pavilion could become a positive note also for other territories. Due to its compact form, universality in function and light construction it is easy to transport. GROUND FLOOR PLAN
Vanguard and contemporary, the pavilion is designed in contrast with the environment, giving it a bright accent. Pavilion is a travelling space of art and recreation. Pavilion is proposed to work as a cafe, with a possibility of exhibition, installation and other small scale facility arranging.
TRENT BASIN TERITORY REVITALIZATION PROPOSAL
Date: 2012 Team: Olga Trebuhina, Tamara Kalantajevska, Pavels Saveljevs Type: urban planning, architectural design
The aim of the contest was to develop sustainable passive house neighbourhood in the abandoned post-industrial Trent Basic warehouses` territory. The proposal of revitalization includes complex strategies for urban planning, as well as passive house detailed architectural design projects. Guidelines of concept: sun energy use, sun-oriented housing, embankment space development, preservation of site`s identity and authenticity, new public spaces, water as space organizing tool.
NOTTINGHAM ‘SUN PORTAL’ Sustainable neighbourhood New urban structure consists of multifunctional apartment house and terraced housing. High building volumes (multifunctional house – 3-storey, old ware houses – 5-storey) form relatively enclosed space for smaller and more private terraced houses.
Parking is arranged parametrically under the built quarter that allows the quarter centre ground to be used as zone of intense vegetation.
In order to keep the advantages of the site maximally used, terraced housing is transparent in direction to the Trent river, so new structures do not separate itself from the embankment and form united, continuous public space.
The configuration of housing units it guided by cardinal directions. The skylights, that are a base point of quarter concept, are oriented to south. Houses and their inhabitants follow the sunlight.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL APARTMENT HOUSE Multicomfort passive housing
Water channel combines three functions â€“ it is a landscape design element, a place of recreation and the main quarter public space organizing tool â€“ WATER PLAZA. Water is no longer a barrier, it is an integral part of the space structure.

MULTICOMFORT TERRACED HOUSE Multifunctional passive housing 5 different housing types composed in 3 floors. Most of them have green terrace, situated in chess order next to each other, to receive enough sunlight. Compact form with irregular inclined roof helps to keep heat inside the passive house.
