KODA in Tallinn, Estonia by Kodasema

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Article source: Kodasema

KODA is constructed of thin composite panels made of a concrete exterior and wood interior, with silica-fume vacuum insulation panels in-between. This combination of materials creates a strong and durable exterior, a nice and cosy interior and will keep the building as warm or cool as needed. The front of the house is a four-ply glass wall with a small terrace and a concrete sunscreen.

Fahle House in Tallinn, Estonia by KOKO architects

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Article source: KOKO architects

Fahle house, which was designed by KOKO, is one of the characteristic examples of architecture during the recent economic boom in Estonia. It is a building that from an architectural point of view was ambitious, from a real estate development point of view risky, and from the heritage protection point of view controversial and received a lot of attention from the public. Situated at one of the main entrances to Tallinn, between the airport and city centre, Fahle house draws the attention of every passer-by. The building is part of the complex of a former cellulose and paper factory where the most outstanding building is the tall and voluminous boiler house (1926) built from limestone and designed by architect Erich Jacoby.

Niine 6a apartment building in Tallinn, Estonia by KUU architects

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Article source: KUU architects

The building is fitted into the urban tissue of a mostly residential historic area. The plot is big enough to leave a gap between the other buildings. With a 300 m2 footprint, the house is also a bit smaller than the adjacent buildings. This gave us the chance to preserve most of the trees and create a large back-yard with a playground,parking, and a communal terrace shared by the residents. In the front, the building creates a recess in the building line for the main entrance.  The first floor level is not much higher than the pavement, which provides a voyeuristic perspective into the apartments and, we believe, contributes to the street by fading the border between private and public space.

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\”.

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.

Perforum in Tallinn, Estonia by Maxwan

Program as Inspiration

The building program provided the inspiration for the design. It is a collection of many different uses. Instead of trying to press all of these varying spaces with varying needs into one singular form, the design allows each component to take on its own form. This permits each programmatic element to work independently and efficiently. The varying spaces are not compromised functionally in order to fit into a certain form.

Tallinn Music High School, Ballet School and Georg Otsa Music School in Estonia by Atelier Thomas Pucher

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: Atelier Thomas Pucher

The key concept was to create not only a building but also a new meaningful city space connecting the people, the place, its history and their music. The building delimits the boundaries of the plot, enclosing an expanse of green at its core: a garden that is urban yet isolated from the hubbub of the city.
