Riga's Jugendstil GrandeurNo. 6 Alberta iela

Portrait of Eisenstein at Wikipedia

No. 6 Alberta iela is another of Mikhail Eisenstein's (portrait at right) designs. One of its most prominent features is the three heads over the main gate arch, symbolic of a person's path through life.

Eclectic decorative elements abound. The design is also notable for its symmetrical design. It combines both brick and parget in the facade—brick being a popular structural element of the time, employed in both Jugendstil and Gothic-inspired designs.
