Lighting the Suurhalle and Zoo pedestrian tunnels

The Suurhalle and Zoo tunnels are located on the Haabersti roundabout, one of the main junctions in Tallinn (capital of Estonia). The designers wanted to create an original visual effect, making the subways beautiful and a delight to walk through. 

 The result is a lighting effect that reflects the movement of people as they walk through the passageway, changing colour with the speed of the pedestrians.

Last year the Rocca al Mare received a dynamic lighting solution and this year it was the turn of the Zoo and Suurhalle pedestrian tunnels.  The best possible lighting solution was sought for the passageways, and the resulting visual effect is incredibly attractive.


The lighting design was the work of Arhitekt Must OÜ, and the project won the design competition organised by the Tallinn Department of Public Works and the Environment. The work was carried out by AS Elektritsentrum, a company specialising in electrical installations. 


An adapted light solution

This project used luminaires produced in their entirety by SECOM ILUMINACIÓN: LARNIK floodlights with RGBW lights. These floodlights were the perfect choice for this job, as they are linear in design and worked perfectly with the concept the designers had in mind.

The architectural design of the tunnels of the Haabersti junction formed part of the project ‘Reconstruction of the Haabersti junction in Tallinn’, and was funded by the European Union Cohesion Fund. The tunnel lighting was contracted by the Department of Public Works and the Urban Environment of Tallinn.
