“The idea for the transition from the ground to the structure was based on the location – a flat lot on the edge of a limestone cliff, a view of the sea and Tallinn, cows, open space,” says the architect. The cows disappeared quite soon due to the rapid pace of real estate development in the vicinity of Tallinn and during the subsequent dozen years or so, the spaciousness has been filled with houses in various styles.
The residence is divided into two parts: dwelling, which is made of a plywood frame and cladding, and an artificial mound with concrete wall (garage and storage area). The terrace, which is oriented towards the sun, is paved with irregularly-shaped slabs of limestone. Alongside wood, natural limestone used on the northern entrance-side façade once again emphasises the house’s local dimension, as do the larch-batten jalousies on the windows.
