Jõhvi town (pop.16850) is important administrative & cultural centre in Ida-Viru county,Northern Estonia. Town size is 7,62 km2. Ironically,Jõhvi has become far more important town in Ida-Virumaa,than Narva which is almost 4 times bigger.
I dug out two interesting projects from Jõhvi. First,we have Jewe Shopping centre extension,Narva mnt.8.
Extension would increase shopping centre size from 6900m² to 14000m² and number of parking lots to 400. Expected number of visitors would be 3 million people in a year.
Current status: Troubles with neighbouring real estate owner. Construction was supposed to start in this year,but will most likely be delayed.

Rakvere tn.4 It seems to be just a proposal (in fact,two different versions - look at the renders) of 5-storey commercial & office building,but damn...just look at it! :drool: :bow:

haha, on jah kavakavalik maja ka natukene.
Aga tõesti, kui lähete kta.ee ja võrdlete pilte siis ju ilmselge. Kuigi, suht lihtne seda kopeerida

pärnu kesklinna kooli võimlaga kõva sarnasus jah. aga see on kta muidugi, kuigi hoone ehitust vähemalt niipea ei tasu loota, tellija olevat pärast piltide saamist kuhugi ära kadunud :D

ah oot, mis, commercial & office?
Phähäähähähähähäh. See ei näe kummagi moodi välja.

Krdi kahju. Sihuke mõnus retro feelinguga hoone oleks olnud.
Muide,seda teise variandi sissepoole kumerat telliskivi fasaadi oleks nagu kusagil varem näinud...heheh.

I usually ignore every religious building,but recently I stumbled upon few interesting designs. It's Jõhvi's Seventh Day Adventists Church (some religious sect). The church is U/C and has deadline in 2012 autumn.
Current U/C design looks like this:
Anyway,that's obviously not interesting. However,what was interesting - two church design proposals by architecture bureau Standup OÜ. They added really cool space age touch to sacral building and despite not being selected,I think those 2 designs are preaching out to architecture fans ;)
How awesome is that?
Anyway,church didn't appreciate such awesomeness:
Vahepeal tegi visiooni kohta pakkumise ka üks arhitektuurifirma, kuid nende ideed olid üsnagi utoopilised ja kosmilist laadi.
...And they selected that first design by some totally unknown architect. It seems that architect's religious background became determining factor :nuts:
Oh,and you bastards better appreciate my effort for finding out all about this project,as I had to dig through some very "heavy" religious material. I'm still trying to pull my infidel soul back together after all that shocking material :devil:

Construction plans of last stage of Jõhvi promenade & central square have stalled - town recently found out that even the cheapest offer made by construction companies was over the budget. Expected cost was 2,5 million €,while cheapest offer by contractors was 4,1 million €.
Officials are currently trying to figure out what to do about it. It's possible that project will be cut in some extent (mainly in construction materials quality),town will take a loan or sell their real estate.
Last stage of Jõhvi promenade & central square was designed by Luhse & Tuhal.

i dislike those upsidedown "L" shape lampposts. Viru square is a good example how bad it makes the whole concept. Its like a shoe box model - not a real square.
Damn, that pink facade church whould had made of me a religious man. Still, Its easy to keep it in drawer, because it would be nice and easily made in every estonian town. I can think, that if I would look through window the pink filtered parks or surroundings, It could even give a positive impulse with max of a hour. In 1960-70 had in europe some pink prison rooms, that made 25 min for a prisoner a relaxing atmosphere. There is crucial the time, that you spent there, as if you stay longer - its more negative than positive feeling.

^^ I like those lamps and I guess you mean Freedom Square not Viru square. IMO, they help to balance the width of the square and create borders for it.

Lubati suvel suurt promenaadi ehitust, aga need lubadused olid vist mingi nali. Ainuke asi mida tõesti ehitati on uus viadukt. Uhkest promenaadist enam ei räägita.
Nüüd vähemalt Tartu mnt-le ehitatakse kõnniteed.
