Hiiu Lõvi (HIIU) in Tallinn, Estonia by Alver Architects

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Article source: Alver Architects

It constitutes the first phase of a larger development by OÜ Tardamel – a local Estonian developer. The complex includes 8,500 m² of residential units – 23 apartments (phase 1) and 10 single-family houses (stage 2 and 3), all integrated into the surrounding landscape of the Tallinn’s picturesque historic neighborhood of Nõmme. The project was defined by its site and the local zoning regulations which restricted the amount of developed space to a maximum of 600 m2 per unit. Thus, the overall concept of the project became \”Buildings in the park\”.

Snailtower in Tartu, Estonia by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Künnapu & Padrik Architects

The building consists of a 23-storey vertical block with flats and some offices, and of a horizontal parking house on four levels. On the north-east side, the building is bordered by a road and by the River Emajõgi, and on the south-west, by the Science Centre Ahhaa. The ground plan of the tower is a spiral. Thus a symbolic building emerged, where the spiral is expressed in the sculptural form of the upper part of the tower. This spiral sculpture contains the idea of the entire project.

Science Centre AHHAA in Tartu, Estonia by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Künnapu & Padrik Architects

The Science Centre forms a joint whole with the earlier Tigutorn (Snail Tower). The idea of Tigutorn’s design was a cosmic spiral, whereas the Science Centre rests on the shape of Vesica Piscis, known in sacred geometry, which has been hidden in the design’s main image. The Centre constitutes the roots of the spiral tower. The cupola, half-cupola, globe and box together produce a constructivist composition, where the connecting elements are vertical communication shafts and horizontal spans, which can be observed both inside and outside.

Estonian Methodist Church in Tallinn, Estonia by AB Künnapu & Padrik

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: AB Künnapu & Padrik

The two-storey building is sculptural, slightly resembling a ship, with a subtle scale. There is a small piazza and an awning in front of the entrance. The crystal-shaped church hall seats 720, and a slender wedge-like spire emerges from it. The curved “tail” contains a common room, theological seminary classes, library, students´ sleeping quarters, offices etc. It is a powerful solution to the rear part of the building.

Villa Lokaator in Paldiski, Estonia by kavakava architects

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Article source: kavakava architects

Situated nearby an ex-Soviet military town, which housed a nuclear submarine training base, Villa Locator deliberately advances the theme of its desolate surroundings. Starting point was an old army barrack made of calcium silicate bricks. The client’s brief was to reinterpret the surrounding military environment and keep the bulky 65-cm-thick existing walls as load bearing external walls. Renovated brick walls are visible in the interior of the house.
