Glass Factory

Our main goal was to design a simple, economical and an attractive building which
also complements the brand of the leading Estonian glass producer Klaasimeister.

 

The concept worked perfectly, and we have since added two further extensions
without having to compromise the complete building’s architectural outlook, on both
occasions we recycled almost all the wallpanels and windows. The main area
includes three parts, two of the areas are designated for industrial production
providing sufficient natural light to reach the inside the building, numerous
windows were planned for the roof and walls. One unit has been designated for
office spaces for the management section of the company. The complete area
consists of two floor levels, where large interior and exterior windows connect the
inside and outside of the building. The building is located alongside the second most
important road in Estonia the Tallinn-Tartu highway, located in a highly visible
position the Klaasmeister factory building has now become a significant and well
known landmark.
