The health and recreation centre is a successful solution at the heart of the small town of Suure-Jaani. The building is considerate of the surrounding environment forming an ensemble with the lake and the church above. The interior is inspired by our exceptional nature in Soomaa – the fifth season. The building is sufficiently compact while also remaining spacious and cosy for the visitors. As you enter the centre, you feel that you and your family are warmly welcome.
