Similarly to the Weizenbergi St. residence, the main feature of this apartment building located in downtown Tallinn is its movable timber facade, located on the building’s southern facade overlooking the street. The movable facade panels allow for control of insolation by the residence from inside their apartments, while also providing for play and character in the streetscape. No façade (elevation) as a fixed composition, but “a movable feast.”
