The architectural solutions for the Veskikodu living environment were developed in association with architects from Korrus, while advice on interior architecture and design was shared by Reet Helisabeth Karm.
Three apartment buildings standing three storeys high will be constructed at Veskikodu. Ranging in size from two to four rooms, the apartments boast carefully considered planning that makes use of space in the smartest way possible. Adding to the sense of spaciousness are the terraces (1st-floor apartments) and balconies (2nd- and 3rd-floor apartments). The apartments feature large windows and are very light and airy.
There are relaxation areas, including children’s playgrounds, next to the apartment buildings.
The energy class of the Veskikodu buildings is B.
The load-bearing structures of the building will rest on reinforced concrete strip foundations. The external walls will comprise insulated concrete stone, while the facades will be covered with eye-catching cement fibre tiles distributed at random.
The ceilings will be made from hollow reinforced concrete panels coated in mineral wool for sound dampening and with a concrete equalisation layer. The building will have a flat roof featuring roll roofing material.
The walls between the apartments and between the apartments and the stairwell will be concrete stone. The internal walls of apartments will be plasterboard on a metal framework. Paint will be used to finish dry rooms, while wet rooms will be finished with ceramic tiles.
Doors & Windows
The Veskikodu apartment buildings will have triple-glazed windows with selective glass in plastic frames. The external doors of the apartments will be wooden. The internal doors will be painted doors on large laminated timber frames.
Ensuring healthy air exchange in the apartments will be an apartment-based heat-recovery forced ventilation system. A mechanical intake and extraction system has been designed for each apartment. A separate ventilation outlet has been planned for the exhaust hoods in kitchens, channelling the air to the roof. This system requires a motorised exhaust hood, which must be purchased and installed by the future owner of the apartment.
The Veskikodu apartment buildings will have an air-water thermal pump-based heating system. The apartments will boast convenient, energy-saving underfloor water heating that can be adjusted in each room. Heating pipe manifold cabinets will be installed on the floor in the hallway.
Water & Sewerage
The apartment buildings will be connected to the water supply and sewerage system. Domestic hot water will be produced on site in the building’s own boiler plant on the 1st floor. The apartments’ water meters will be read remotely, with the readings being taken automatically and forwarded to the building management company.
Electricity & Weak-Current Systems
The electricity meters for the apartments will be located in the power room on the 1st floor of the building and read remotely. The power boxes for the apartments will be recessed in the hallway wall. Power outlets, switches and data connection points will be installed in the apartments. Recessed LED lighting will be installed in the sanitary rooms and hallway. The apartment buildings will have a video intercom system.
Car Park & Storage Spaces
Each apartment will come with its own storage space on the 1st floor. The parking spaces designed for residents will be in a sealed car park on the property. A rising barrier will be installed at the entrance to the car park.
The main contractor for the construction work is Riser Ehitus OÜ.
