The Koda Estonia Pavilion by KUU Architects is a modern reinterpretation of historic Estonian traditions. Inspired by the nation's forest dwelling past, this geometry-infused architecture piece features a wooden construction and angular roof that represents the structure's multiple volumes.

Made of timber, this building is modelled after a koda, the country’s first wooden structures that were first built during the 3rd millennium BCE. The name Koda means 'place for living' combining the Estonian words for home and place.

The Koda Estonia Pavilion by KUU Architects pays tribute to Estonian customs while embracing modern technology and design concepts. From its durable and local materiality to its simplistic and sustainable construction practices, this cultural centre stands amongst of its mountainous surroundings.
