The headquarters of the National Archives, Noora, is a pleasant, comfortable place to work for researchers and historians as well as for the archive staff. The facade textile art titled Uure, the audio installation in the interior,and the distinctive interior design elements all create a warm environment and remind people in the building that Noora is the home of Estonia's written memory.
