Apartment building – Mardi street 9, Tallinn

Customer: Barensholm OÜ
Aarchitect: Kuu Arhitektid OÜ ja Projekt O2 OÜ
Developer: Pikoprojekt OÜ
Builder: RAMM Ehituse OÜ
Concrete products supplier: AS E-Betoonelement

Submission grounds: the idea behind the apartment building on Mardi street was to convey the historical atmosphere of the Keldrimäe neighbourhood, densely built-up and planned in human scale. The apartment building is divided into three sections with different finishes and volume, thus creating a harmonious urban ensemble with the surrounding historical buildings.
The recessed facade with articulated balconies adds human scale to the large building, and provides sufficiently large balconies/terraces to the south-facing apartments.
