Tell me about your trip to Georgia. It’s famous for its magnificent history and unparalleled natural beauty, what did you go for?

That’s true! Georgia is a wonderful country and despite the fact that we are quite close neighbors, I have never been there until now! Which was unacceptable! So my friends and I decided to correct this misunderstanding. Georgia is famous for its hospitality, great local kitchen and of course the unforgettable nature. That it has proven without any doubts. I would say two words, people & mountains. Or even PEOPLE & MOUNTAINS! Like that. That is all you need to know.

Arvo Pärt Centre  |  OFIS
Location: Laulasmaa, Estonia  |  More Views: 1234. 5. 6.

The Arvo Pärt Center near Tallinn is designed based on “high comfort – low impact” philosophy. The energy consumption is reduced by the building design by combining all building areas into one single volume in order to minimize perimeter heat transfer area. The next step is the utilization of minimally heated and naturally cooled buffer spaces like the central atria and double skin facades on the first level. In addition, a high quality façade – including triple glazing - insulates the building in winter. An exterior shading system reduces summer solar gains, but allows for daylight and passive solar heating in winter. The ventilation of the Arvo Pärt Center is driven by stack effect and a solar chimney during winter, whereas during summer the building will be naturally ventilated. The atria itself is used as an exhaust air atria, which is connected to the solar chimney. A water wall in the center of the atria will provide cooling in summer and humidification in winter. With these measures a highly comfortable building will be achieved using a minimum of energy and resources.”
