The new school will be built in Tallinn at Pärnu road 59 and has about 700 study places planned. The building meets Energy Class A and has a closed net area of 23,860 m². The building is designed by Austrian architect Thomas Pucher who won an architectural contest with his work already in 2011. The 3 + 1 architects and T43 interior architects (Estonia) are also involved in the project (Estonia).

The architectural idea of the design is to create a special enchanted place in an urban space, where buildings are arranged at the borders of the plot, so that a unique open space - “the garden of silence” - is created in the middle.

The load-bearing structure of the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet building is performed by E-Betoonelement by delivering hollow core panels, solid slabs, posts, beams, partitions and stairs to the site. The facade of the building will consist of aluminum composite plate with metal cassettes of diferent shades, and each window will be surrounded by a frame that highlights the dance and instrument playing in the building, thus enlivening the urban space.

E-Betoonelement will finish the supply in spring 2021, and the Scgool of Music and Ballet will open on September 1, 2022.
