The new building of Tallinn Vindi Kindergarten got a cornerstone
On February 15, the cornerstone was laid in the new building of Tallinn Vindi Kindergarten (Vindi tn 3) in the Kristiine district, which is planned to open this year. Designed by our amazing team.
The 12-group building of Vindi Kindergarten will be built on the site of a largely demolished house. The building with two above-ground and one underground floors is articulated to suit the surrounding environment and landscape. The group rooms are designed in a double part of the building and the administrative block with halls, kitchen and auxiliary rooms in a single part. In front of the double part of the house there are terraces, which also make it convenient to study outdoors. Play areas can also be placed under the roof slice of the disposable part of the house. The main entrance to the building opens from the paved square in front of the house, from where you can access all the premises, including those intended for community use.
Vindi kindergarten is built by Nordlin Ehitus and owner supervision is carried out by AS Infragate Eesti, designed by Esplan OÜ. The deadline for completion of construction works is September 2022, the kindergarten is expected to be opened in October.
Ülemiste City high-rise
Ülemiste City high-rise – ESPLAN in cooperation with Zaha Hadid Architects and Mainor Ülemiste is planning one of the most important landmarks of Tallinn at the Rail Baltic Ülemiste Joint Terminal. The aim is to strengthen the relationship between the railway and the airport, which will define the new Ülemiste multimodal transport hub, would complement and serve a significant extent the entire Ülemiste City with its functions.
As in other emerging European capitals, the development of transport hubs has become increasingly important, creating mixed-use functional neighborhoods where modern transport system with surrounding support functions is attractive to foreign tourists, citizens and adds significant value to local community development.
RMK Tartu office building was nominated to the “Construction Project of the Year 2020” competition
An architecturally attractive and functional building is the result of good cooperation between architects and engineers. The load-bearing structures of the building have been solved with CLT panels, Mr. Laur Lõvi has been the leading structural engineer and the architects were our good partners Kauss Arhitektid.
For ESPLAN, this has been a great cooperation with RMK (State Forest Centre). By excellent project management we were able to realize all the goals of the client. The whole construction process went smoothly and in the end the building was commissioned before the deadline.
This building is definitely a bold statement in the landscape of wooden architecture, where workplace environment serves for employee satisfaction and smart technical system solutions support sustainablity.
