Exterior architecture

The design of the Paepanga terraced houses was inspired by their location on a cliff-top meadow with views out to sea. The architecture of the buildings is modern and looks to the future but is homely at the same time. The overall space within the larger structure is broken down into smaller parts almost as if offset against one another so as to provide privacy between the homes and lend the spatial solution a sense of dynamics and freedom of being.

The Paepanga homes are more spacious in terms of their planning than is typical of terraced houses. The airy staircase hallway and master bedroom with its own ensuite and walk-in wardrobe are experiences in themselves. The staircase leads you to the roof-top terrace, where you can enjoy both sea views and privacy.

The positioning of the complex on the property is very good in terms of the compass points: the private rear part of each home (which is where you will find the terrace, living room, sauna and main bedroom) faces the sea and will get the evening sun. There are large windows on this side of each home. The entryway, kitchen and other bedrooms will enjoy the morning sun. In front of each apartment is parking for up to three vehicles and a storage space measuring 7-16 square metres.

The main material used on the exterior of the building is thermo-processed pine and charred timber cladding, lending the townhouses a solid and lasting sense of homeliness. The terraced houses follow the rhythm of urban construction in the Paevälja district and fit in very well with their surroundings, while also standing out.
