An exclusive home in Kadriorg park
An exclusive double-villa in an area of cultural and environmental value in Kadriorg park. From the balcony of the villa, a view opens onto Kadriorg park and a rose garden. Close by are the Presidential Palace and the Kadriorg Palace complex with its park, KUMU Art Museum and Peter the Great’s House Museum, the representational villas built in the 1870s and 1880s as well as 21st century private houses and residential buildings. There are recreational areas in the vicinity, sports facilities, kindergartens and schools as well as public transportation access. Traditional Kadriorg style gable roof wooden houses have been considered in the design of the house – they have been raised “up in the air” to let the building blend in with the historical Kadriorg villas. The facade of the villa is covered with burnt larch cladding, a traditional Japanese technique that is being used for the first time in Estonia. The shiny contrast of two types of copper sheet with a dark facade gives a unique look to the building.
The building consists of two parts. There are more than 200 square metres of space, together with the third storey terrace opening up on the wonderful view of Kadriorg park in daytime and for the evening sun. The house was designed by architect Indrek Almann from the architectural design bureau Pluss, a winner of various design competitions in Estonia as well as elsewhere in the world. The villa was built by Lahever Ehitus OÜ. Interior design by renowned designers Urmo and Tüüne-Kristin Vaikla and landscaping by OÜ Kivisilla under the supervision of Ülle Grishakov. See also:
