Historically Riga had up to twelve thousand wooden buildings as of today the number of those constructions is 3 times lesser. Territory of Z-Towers complex includes several constructions of second half of 18th – middle of 19th centuries. The restoration of those buildings is in progress. This is not a secret, with just few exceptions, those historical buildings are not in good shape. One of the important initiatives and tasks of Z-Towers project is restoration and renovation of ensemble of historical buildings located on its territory.
During a renovation of the buildings a special attention will be applied to architectural design which will be restored according to initial design.
Following buildings will be restored on the territory of Z-Towers: Gustav Shkilter mansion, Gustav Shkilter was a Latvian sculptor and graphic artist, one of the first representatives of the Latvian school of sculpture of the 20th century. Family house of the merchant Willhelm Shreder , built in second half of 18th century.
