Gallery! Renowned photographers compete at a height of almost 100 metres

What is the heart of Tallinn in 2021? A recent photo competition ‘At the Height of the City Centre” captured views from a height of almost 100 metres and ranked the best. The winning work was submitted by Estonian photographer Eerik Ülevain.

Professional Estonian photographers took part in the recently ended competition, having been presented with the opportunity to capture the heart of the city from the top floor of the 95-metre high Skyon commercial building. The competition was organized by Capital Mill.

According to Igor Mölder, CEO of Capital Mill, Skyon is the company’s tallest development. ‘The construction of a high-rise building near the heart of the city is undoubtedly a major challenge, and we are all the more pleased to say that we have reached the home stretch today. Prior to completion of the glass façade and roof, we gave renowned Estonian photographers the opportunity to take pictures of the city from the top or 26th floor. The idea behind the competition was to record the metropolitan development of Tallinn and capture its beauty.’

From among the photographs captured by the height defying photographers, Capital Mill selected the three best, which will decorate Skyon’s atrium, which will be completed in the summer. In addition, Euronics gift cards worth EUR 200-500 were awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place photos.

Several companies providing IT, legal and financial services will move into the Skyon commercial building next summer. However, the most striking difference setting the skyscraper apart from the rest of the cityscape is its unique in the Baltics coloured glass façade, which will consist of 898 coloured elements when completed. The author of the skyscraper is KOKO architects, recognized both in Estonia and internationally.
