Viru shopping centre renovation

Center 2.0 in the heart of Tallinn

Based on the winning work at the Wingardh Architects Competition, What If, in collaboration with a local team of 3 + 1 architects, led the entire team involved in the construction project from sketch to project.

Scope

Approximately 75,000 m2 gross area. Reconstruction of the existing Viru Center building into a modern business, trade and entertainment center.

Character

Reconstruction of all major general areas, addition of new functions and planning of logistical breakthroughs will give the center a completely new look and feel. As the center currently operates as a terminal with almost 50,000 visitors a day, we looked for ways to create the most innovative and inspiring user experience for all different target groups. The addition of catering, wellness and new commercial concepts will make the center more resilient and flexible to future changes.

Challenges

Collecting, sorting and arranging additional studies for reliable projects and other drawings on the existing building complex. Construction planning and research, taking into account that tenants must be able to operate in the building as smoothly as possible. Continuous adaptation and optimization of the original vision with changes resulting from the surprises of the existing building.
