Officially the Republic of Latvia (Latvian: Latvijas Republika), is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, one of the three Baltic states. It is bordered by Estonia to the north, Lithuania to the south, Russia to the east, and Belarus to the southeast, as well as sharing a maritime border with Sweden to the west.

The three biggest ports of Latvia are located in Riga, Ventspils, and Liepāja. Most transit traffic uses these and half the cargo is crude oil and oil products.
The Free port of Ventspils is one of the busiest ports in the Baltic states. Riga International Airport is the busiest airport in the Baltic states with 4.7 million passengers in 2012.

Kimmel Quarter Buildings
SHL’s competition-winning proposal aimed to revive the brewery site by transforming it into an office building and hotel with public facilities on the ground floor that will bring new life to the area such as a public gym, child care centre, café, spa, food court and convenience store. By creating inviting courtyards and plazas that connect old and new, the design will create a strong urban expression.
