Solis BioDyne, a Tartu-based international and swiftly evolving biotech company, has decided to raise a new building that would convey its vision.
The location in the Green Park of Tartu, a rapidly developing production and business area, provides an opportunity for growth and being connected with the city: e.g. following the example of Ülemiste City in Tallinn, a new train stop is being planned so that people arriving in Tartu could go off at the Green Park stop.
The two-storey building accommodates labs as well as offices, lined by an outdoor garden through two floors. The green plant facades, the flowing spatial layout and the spiral staircase all carry a clear message of thinking outside the box.
The team of LUMIA had a superb opportunity to design this environment as a whole: the architecture, the interior architecture and the landscape.
