The jury of the architectural contest for the Stroomi Beach building in Tallinn chose the design "Rannahoov" as the winner.
The building complex of design project "Rannahoov" consists of five courtyards, which are surrounded by a canopy and an already existing hedge. The area under the canopy also has space for two two-story cafes and restaurants.
Going from north-south, a promenade will pass the courtyards with views, activities and other experiences along the promenade. Going east-west, the alley of the oak park and Kolde puiestee are amplified. Extension of the promenade on Kolde puiestee will pass through a potential parking building and will turn into a boardwalk as it reaches the beach.
The jury chose between five project designs: "Laine", "Randevuu", "Kaarik", "Mere ärkamine", and "Rannahoov". A total of eight projects were submitted to the contest.
Second place was given to "Mere ärkamine", which was also the favorite in a public vote.
The current beach building, built in 1996, will be demolished because its architecture and use of space does not fully use the full potential of the location.
