Pirita House by Kadarik Tüür Arhitektid

Two story house located in a residential housing district in Pirita, Tallinn

The main character of the building lies in the volumetric play of the roof to frame the views towards the natural forest in the back and catch the daylight in front of the house. Varied size of openings offer modulated natural light all day long. Common areas are located on the ground floor and have direct connection to the garden. Dining area with kitchen is placed in the southward protruding volume receiving the full spectrum of daylight. Living room with sauna are facing evening sun in the west and have direct access to the covered terrace. The terrace is part of the landscape which has been designed to gradually grow out of nature to become part of the building and dissolve the boarder between inside and outside.
