This translucent gallery, which hangs above the city quarter of the Bank of Estonia, is defined by refined materials and complex architectural geometry used in the construction. The quarter is closed for the public due to security concerns. The gallery is thus a small, yet important addition to the historic bank buildings as it serves to connect them with each other.
Designed before digital design tools and 3D-modelling became commonly used among Estonian architects, the gallery is a handcrafted experiment in spatial design, despite its active functional purpose. Glass and steel details are intricately coalesced according to geometric and structure demands of the design. Due to its distinct material and tectonic qualities the gallery acts as a uniquely sensuous space. Refined and cool in its character, it calmly serves those who traverse it daily as a silent area for contemplation.
