Jury commentary

Ühele maastikuarhitektuuribüroole oli aasta külluslik – aastatepikkuse sihikindla töö viljad said valmis. TajuRuum esitas kandidaatidena neli avaliku ruumi objekti, mis žürii hinnangul on kõik võrdselt head ja tunnustust väärivad, sestap ei toogi aasta 2018 mitte üht valitud preemiatööd, vaid ühe preemiabüroo. Valminud objektid paiknevad laiali üle Eesti, igal tööl on oma isikupära, funktsioon ja paiga vaim. Samas on neis tunda ühtset käekirja – head ruumitaju – just TajuRuumi nime vääriliselt.

Mäetaguse kooli kõrvale rajatud avalik mänguväljak pakub ristkasutust – mitu kasutust on antud ka asfaldiplatsile, mis sobib ühtviisi nii päästeauto manöövriteks kui põnevate markeeringutega ka noortele tegevuseks.

We use the squares both for our physical education classes and after school groups. Similarly, they are used by the local residents to spend time with their children outside the school hours. The outdoor gym is used by the visitors of Hotel Meintack and pensioners. The basketball court is popular among teenagers. Also the football cage is in active use. We are happy with the square, it invites people to exercise. Our development plan includes also some further developments for the square in the future.

Landscape architecture office TajuRuum designs outdoor spaces. The office mainly focuses on public and semi-public spaces such as parks, streets, squares and schoolyards, but we also deal with private gardens, outdoor areas around apartment buildings and factories etc. We provide solutions from design contest drafts to the operational building design stage. Each project is a challenge and we try to keep the range of topics as wide as possible.

Our daily work aims at increasing the quality of our living environment by wisely selected solutions. Our strength lies in the cooperation of various specialists, the inclusion of all parties and the resulting synergy. We believe in the power of collaboration and the contribution of various people. Each project is made-to-measure – we put together a team to tackle the particular challenges, select the respective means and solutions.

We regularly go in for design competitions to stay in shape and get interesting commissions. We also promote the field on a number of fronts – we teach at the university, talk and write about landscape architecture to the general public and we also participate in the work of professional association work groups.
