INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY PAIRED WITH ANCIENT WISDOM
The Tammsaare 56 office building combines the capabilities of innovative technology with the ancient principles of feng shui. For example, the architects from HGA were guided by the feng shui method in designing a grand main entrance for the building, covering the facade in actual copper and avoiding sharp corners.
Energy will be produced by the solar panels on the roof, ensuring lower costs and a more pleasant indoor climate for the building’s users.
THE DESIGN OF THE BUILDING PUTS PEOPLE FIRST
All seven floors of the Tammsaare 56 building are characterised by their spaciousness, their high ceilings and the amount of natural light they enjoy.
The building’s location offers impressive views of the surrounding area, including the neighbouring park. Its rooftop terrace will be the perfect place to enjoy these views while holding meetings, taking lunch breaks or simply relaxing.

“The interior architecture we came up with for Tammsaare 56 was inspired by the nearby tennis courts, which are reflected in its clay-red tones.
The areas for everyone’s use in the building are marked out by their soft forms, including the wall lighting, which is designed to symbolise tennis balls. Those who take out leases in the building will have a choice of three colours for their meeting and recreational spaces, in which our inspiration came from the playing surfaces of the courts used in tennis tournaments held in different parts of the world.”
“The shape and very nature of the Park Tondi office building derive from the unique values that already exist on the site. The three-sided building chimes with what you see around it: on one side Tammsaare Road and its business frontage; on another the historical army barracks with their red bricks; and on the other the neighbouring recreational facilities of the park and tennis courts.
Natural copper was chosen for the facade, which blends in perfectly with the quarter’s original clay bricks, the clay surface of the tennis courts and the trunks of the pine trees. Over time it will oxidise and form a patina, adding a temporal dimension to the new structure.”
