Commercial and residential building Katusepapi 16, Tallinn

This commercial and residential building consists of two four-storey building spaces: a hotel and an apartment building located in the Lasnamäe district of Tallinn. The architecture of the building is subdivided both horizontally and vertically, consisting of an eastern wing (A) with a rectangular floor plan and a western wing (B) with a square-shaped floor plan. The building is designed in a modern minimalist style. The first floor contains an open car park (47 parking spaces) and entrances to both wings – separate lobbies with a staircase and elevator. The ground floor of wing A holds a commercial and service space with a separate entrance, and the ground floor of wing B holds storage rooms for the apartments and housing spaces. Floors 2 to 4 are designed as separate blocks. Floors 2 to 4 of wing A are specifically designed for accommodation – a hostel with two stairways. Wing B holds guest apartments, with private apartments on the fourth floor. Altogether, the hostel section of the building contains 51 accommodation rooms, while wing B contains 16 guest apartments and 8 private apartments. Accommodation room floors 1 and 2 are joined together by an unheated stairway and a linking gallery. The foundation of columns and load-bearing walls will be built on natural limestone. The load-bearing structure is primarily made of precast reinforced concrete. The outer walls are designed as thermally insulated lightweight structures. The interior walls will be drywall partitions on steel profiles. The apartments will be separated by concrete walls. Exterior surfaces will be clad with decorative tiles and rendered fibre cement boards, while interior surfaces will be covered with plasterboard. The reinforced concrete slabs used in the building’s roof floor will be covered with polystyrene foam boards, which will also be used for the pitch of the roof. Floors will be made from precast reinforced concrete. The project for the premises also includes a driveway, parking area (37 parking spaces), and landscaping with grass, trees, and bushes.
