Extensive use of natural light and a clear separation of private and public spaces define the character of this private residence in a calm suburban area just outside of Tallinn. While the street facade remains reserved, the courtyard walls with large windows open up towards the nearby oak forest. The L-shaped building embraces an old oak tree which has been integrated into the courtyard terrace. Mainly a level building, the villa rises to two floors only with its courtyard wing where the bedrooms are located.
The building demonstrates how aesthetic ambitions can be harmoniously integrated into practical solutions. Close attention has been paid to the use of sustainable materials and efficient energy solutions. The building is mostly made of wood while natural clay has been used as a finishing material on the interior surfaces. Alliku Villa is a great example of an energy-efficient house with distinctly contemporary architecture.
