6th Section of Space: Veskimetsa (Mill Forest)

A space with high development potential between  the Tallinn Zoo and an industrial area.

Existing Situation

+/- a development area

+ an existing mixed-use light traffic road

+ border with Tallinn Zoo

- monotonous space

- lack of identity

Natural Environment

+  a large semi-natural grassland

+ Tallinn Zoo

+ Veskimetsa forest is a valuable habitat

+/- as the habitat of pollinators of average value at the moment

Spatial Planning and Interventions

  • "opening" of the zoo - creating a visual connection and /or the possibility of passing through (improving pedestrian connectivity with the Rocca al Mare area

  • adding places for rest and leisurely activities

  • potential location for an allotment garden

  • a need to separate movement paths of different speed and nature

Check out the Landscape Architecture Vision for Spatial Sections from Mustjõe to Hiiu!

The concept project for  Mustjõe, Veskimetsa, Väike-Õismäe, Astangu and Hiiu offer a preliminary vision for the development of the areas, which was created by landscape architects from  Artes Terrae. Further design will follow.
