Eeden - Shopping centre
- Investor: TTK Investeeringud OÜ
- Builder: Ehitustrust AS
- Architectural design: AB Sport OÜ
Eeden is a shopping and leisure centre located about 3 km to the southeast of the heart of the Estonian city of Tartu. It was built in the early 2000s and renovated in 2018 because of a need for more space for new services. Today, Eeden has 74 tenants and a floor area of more than 25,000 square metres.
Ruukki delivered the sandwich panels, design profiles and load-bearing roofing sheets for the building. The most impressive delivery was the gold-coloured, perforated façade. Façade lamellas have been perforated to depict the Garden of Eden with its palm trees and exotic life. Since there are lights behind the façade cladding, the figures are also visible at night.
“We chose the new façade from the many options that were initially on offer. Ruukki is a leading actor in the business and also a reliable one. That is why we decided with the builder to choose them to partner with us in the project,” explains Margus Tuuling, Head of Construction and Maintenance at AS Eedeni Keskus.
