The apartment buildings of Uus-Veerenni Park will be erected on the side of Vana-Lõuna street situated in the Uus-Veerenni development area in Pille Street. Two four-floor buildings and one six-floor building will be completed next summer, with landscaping and a recreational and playground area open to the southern and western exposure of the sun, pedestrian crosswalks will be built within the residential district and underground parking will be established for cars.
In creating the architectural solution for Uus-Veerenni Park, architect Velle Kadalipp was inspired by plywood as a material to which the Luther factory, formerly situated in the same location, has added historical value. Hints of the layered structure of the plywood and the striped cross-section may be seen in the design of the facades as well as in the stairways of the houses. The higher volume of the building is convex in shape, similar to bent plywood, which curves around the adjacent traffic circle.
The new apartment buildings are of energy class B and are built on the principle of Smart House. The buildings have one to four-room apartments, some of which with private balconies or terraces facing the courtyard. The apartments are equipped with forced ventilation with heat recovery and room-controlled water underfloor heating.
Uus-Veerenni is the largest comprehensive residential development area in tge city centre of Tallinn, located between Veerenni, Vana-Lõuna and Tehnika streets. About half a hundred new apartment buildings will be constructed in the total amount of the development project in the next ten years. Premises for small businesses and offices on the first floors of buildings will be established, while a kindergarten and a commercial building will be built at a later stage of the development.
