Tallinn Industrial Education Centre hall
Gross area: 444 m2
A big hand for the acoustics specialists!
“The hall, which was in a poor state, and its auxiliary rooms were redesigned as a multifunctional space accommodating nearly 400 people. Modern stage technology and lighting were installed and excellent acoustics were created, making it possible to hold festive events and to use the hall as a large auditorium and for musical performances.
The objective of the interior architecture was to preserve as much of the existing hall as possible. As such, the shape of the new ceiling was inspired by the previous design; the original seats (which already have a retro feel to them) continue to be used, fully restored, as does the timber flooring; and the brick wall of the hall has been given a cool new lick of paint. A variety of materials, patterns and forms have been combined in exciting ways – brick walls, rows of chairs, the suspended ceiling and the geometric feature on the back wall. The colour scheme, inspired by the school logo, helps to bind the interior and exterior finishes of the school together.”
