Consultant Adams Kara Taylor has won the design competition for Tallinn’s new City Hall in Estonia alongside Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) architects

The new administrative building of the city government that will be situated on a 35,000 m2 plot near the Linnahall building.

The various public departments will be visible above the public service market place via the light wells and courtyards and panoramic windows.

The City Council will be located in the town hall tower, which features a reflective sloping ceiling.

“The structural concept reflects the simplicity of the architectural intent; a grouping of “easily assembled individual Frames”  that through vierendeel frames free the connection of the city at ground level whilst simultaneously act as a “group” to resist lateral loads,” said Adams Kara Taylor founding partner Hanif Kara. “The result is an economic ,fast build adaptable solution.”
