Arhitektide kasvuhoone Restoration of Tallinn Watertower and the attic of Tallinn University of Technology Tallinn College Mentors: Rein Murula, Katrin Etverk Co- Authors: Anna Temmo, Ivo- Sven Riet Tallinn University of Technology 2014
Situation at the moment At the moment the Tallinn water tower which is connected by walls with Tallinn College is out of use. As the tower is now in the hands of Architecture institute, new functions for are architecture students and also for the citizens are meant to be given to it. The height of the tower is 33.8 m, and diameter 13.7m. Tere are four concrete levels and a high atrium inside the tower, built in the late 20th century. The water tower still has its original water tank at the top. The attic of the Tallinn College building is not in use right now but it will accomodate new rooms for the Architecture Institute. The aim is to plan a modelling studio and chill-out area with a kitchen so that the whole attic could be used 24/7.
Tower As we were fascinated about the space inside the tower, which was practically screaming for temporary installations, we decided not to pull down or destroy allmost anything inside of it. The firs floor and fist level will be an exhibition area open for citizens ,the nex three levels will also be exhibition areas, but only for the institute students. The current water tank will be transformed into an auditorium. Attic The attic will be restorated in a way that destroys as little as possible. All the existing columns will stay in place and they are used as space dividers. The attic is planned in a way that different functions will cause people to move around (i.e. between the library and modeling area) and that will make it easier for students to start communication with each other.

Keerdus EeStairs Design Competition Co- Authors: Anna Temmo, Ivo- Sven Riet 2014 Explanation motivation: For competition task we chose a building in Tallinn city centre that dates back to 1935. It was extended in 1958 and is currently under heritage protection. Two years ago an architecture school was opened in this building. The school has a plan to adapt the attic for students studio. There are two main problems that need to be solved. First, the attic doesnâ€™t have enought natural sunlight. Second in order to fulfill the emergency requirements a second exit to the third floor needs to be built. We decided to solve the natural light problem by introducing additional dormer windows and use them as a binding element for solving second exit problem. For the second exit we decided to design an exterior staircase between the third floor and the attic to save as much indoor space as we could. There was no need for a new opening in the facade because of existing balcony on the third floor. As these balconies are on every floor, it leaves an opportunity to extend the staircase or add an elevator and create connection with all remaining floors.
Explanation design The stair is a light, sculptural form that gives a hint about the architecture school. It has an unconventional style with glass floor and ceiling and solid walls. The stairâ€™s fraimwork consists of four prefabricated steel beams and diagonal connections. The lower support structure is made of modular elements which form the steps. As walls finishing we chose brushed cement rendering with a conceptual translucent skyline using optic fiber. The staircaseâ€™s roof and floor are made of glass panes on steel framework.
JĂ¤rve Traffic and Urban Planning Co- Author: Ivo- Sven Riet Mentors: Irina Raud, Ignar Fjuk Tallinn University of Technology 2013
Järve is a quarter in Tallinn that is situated between a garden-city Nõmme and the city centre. Our aim was to make Nõmme part of the city, and give it a real connection with the city centre. The quarter is next to the forest that is under the protected area of Ülemiste lake. Traffic The former 6- lane Pärnu mnt. is now divided into 2+2 motorway below ground and 2+2 motorway on ground. The tunnel is a fast way for people to get from city centre to Nõmme, while the 2+2 lane on ground is slower and gives opportunities to turn into the new quarters. The former Viljandi mnt went over the railway, the new solution uses an electricity lane to place the new 2+2 motorway.. A very important part of our solution is connecting the new Järve quarter with Mustamäe, which right now are separated by a railway. In our solution two new lanes pass under the existing railway, forming a square, which is a perfect place for the new Järve terminal. Terminal will host several bus stops, a train perron and also tram stops at the end of the extended tramline. The tramline extension on the side of Pärnu mnt. and with the connection to the new terminal also leaves an opportunity for another extension to Mustamäe in the future. The terminal has a big open public square in the middle, which passes through the existing railway.
Tramline 2+2 tunnel Pärnu mnt. 2+2 Pärnu mnt. Railway
2+2 Viljandi mnt.
The new terminal is situated between three motorways, a tramline and a pedestrian way and the railway goes right through it. The motorways give the opportunity for several bus stops to different directions, such as N천mme, City Centre, Mustam채e.
The aim was to create a terminal that is easy to see and access by pedestrians. The fan shaped square in the middle makes the tram stop and train peron visible from both sides. The square goes throug the current railway.
As the terminal has pedestridan ways on each four sides, it will also be accessible from the sides where the railway perrons go though.
To make the terminal more user friendly, we added covered squares, as the pathways to bus/tram/train stops should be visible and for the passengers to be more comfortable to wait for their transport indoors.
The aim was to replace the current railway bump which cannot be passed with perron that can be passed underneath it. The result was a public square that goes lower than the current ground, allowing the people to pass through.
Emajõe Business Centre and Tartu Bus Station Surroundings Vision Competition Co- Authors: Ivo- Sven Riet, Priit Lõhmus Arhitektuurimootor OÜ + Voluut OÜ 2013 Competition task There are lots of business enterprises near Emajõe Business Centre and Tasku shopping centre. The area is visited by lots of people dayly. There is also a bus terminal in the area. The competition was organised to find a solution around the bus station and business centre that would be human friendly and also rethink the spacial identity of Tartu´s new city centre and harbour area.

the front of the bus station and shopping mall is boardened and turned into an area for pedestrians and cyclists. To activize the street, the existing covering will be built closed so that little shops and
â€œThe solution connects the whole competition area into one whole public space that is mainly oriented for pedestrians, which is a proposal we approve. Calming down the traffic with pavement is widely used and very European approach. The handwriting of this work is sensitive, but in such a large area unreal and economically too expensive. The L-shaped public shape turns around Dorpat Hotel and connects Soola street with the riverside. The design is unique and clever. As a positive aspect wewould bring forth the wide pedestrian area in front of the bus station and the riverside solution. There might not be room for a small boat harbour. Unfortunately there is no place forr kiss&go parking space. The wavy roofed bycycle parks are nice but very expensive

Installation “City Canon” and MAKETT 1:1 Street Intervention Co- Authors of “City Canon”: Anna Temmo, Karel Kask, Andres Ristov, Aleksandra Papunova Exhibited: on Street Intervention “MAKETT 1:1” on Mere Street in Tallinn; Architecture School´s Exhibition at Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2013; on top of Musumägi (Kissing Hill) at Tallinn Light Biennale 2013
“A street intervention by young architects describes in 1:1 scale – i.e. in the existing urban space – what could a modern city street for a diverse user base feel like. Our most important goal is to re-establish the street as a natural space for the city’s inhabitants. This intervention is as an experimental tool in the hands of future architects. It is a way to evaluate real changes in the street during the planning process.” by MAKETT 1:1
“„City Canon“ was inspired by discussion on urban proportions and dimensions. Tallinn is a heterogeneous structure of different neighborhoods. The urban space conceals a higher potential than we see being used today. This experiment aims to turn people’s attention to it by creating a contrasting space which is unfamiliar to what we feel and see everyday. This installation was originally designed and prepared for a street intervention “M1:1 - a 1:1 Scale Model of a Modern Sity Street”” by Tallinn Light Biennale
Viljandi Minihansa Themepark Vision Competition Molekul Co- Authors: Anna Jurasevitš, Ivo- Sven Riet Arhitektuurimootor 2013 Location: „Minihansa“ exhibition is an important part of emracing the Culture of Viljandi. It will attract locals and tourists. Keeping thatin mind, the location of MOLEKUL is chosen to be in the crossroad of existing pathways in Valuoja park. The existing and planned paths will lead the visitors to Minihansa area. The area is also well seen from the roads around the park.
on the meeting points, which are connected and the
covered with molecullike system of pathways, which also resembles to the connections between the cityies of Hanseatic Leage. An important part of the solution is creating a new health track which will be connected to the exitsting recreation area near Paala lake.The pedestrian way will go all around the park and it will have several resting points with sitting opportunities. The new resting points will have new greenery around them, where amongst other trees, fruit trees will be planted.
The Hansaetic Cities models will be exhibited on a surrounded area, near the most importat pathway of the park. The exhbition area is 3700 sqm, from which 650 sqm is on the island. 24 towns (51%) will have their models on inner land and 19 (39%) by the â€œseaâ€? and 5 towns on the island. There are three different sizes for model areas. The smallest are 20sqm, the middle ones 40sqm and the biggest ones are 60sqm. Minihansa exhibition area is placed on a concrete ground with different levels.The concrete area extends in front of the exhibition area, giving some room for visitor groups to gather before entering. The area can also be used for holding small public events.

Solution The new apartment houses are situated on the edges of the park. The park has been planned in a way that it offers as much public space activites as possible, such as skating, sitting, outdoor gym, a basketball court, playgrounds and so on. The Park side of the area and the urban side of the area are linked by a library that crosses the new road and opens up to the park with a huge look-out window. The library also has a cafe and a terracces on the first floor on the park side. The office side of the area has small shops and services on the first floor to make the street more attractvie for pedestrians. The area also features two covered shopping areas. The heights of the buildings raise towards the existing railway to reduce the noise coming from it. The existing railstation buildings are taken to use as a gallery and part of the library. The new apartment buildings have through-house apartments, giving them as much light as possible and better views. The apartments have floor heating systems, solar panel system for heating water and also a cleaning system for using the rain water.

RUUKKII IDEA Noise Barrier Competition TORUS Co- Author: Ivo- Sven Riet 2012
noise barrier + pedestrain road = torus The IDEA of Torus is to combine noise barrier with a safe pedestrian and/or cycling road. The construction of Torus is based on steel frame.Torus consists of modules which can be added or taken away if neccessary. The modules are closed from highway side and open to park or residental area. Torus also gives an opportunity to design a bridge accross the highway. The construction can be done in a way that it would look like like a stretched module.
