Client feedback by Tuuliki Tõiste, Development Manager:
"For us as a library, the facade textile mainly enables to protect our books on open shelves from direct sunlight. It is also a great windcatcher – it feels with windy weathers that we have a „dress“ on. The facade was given 10 years of warranty, our building was finished in 2009, so it is already 13th season running and there are no signs of wear and no need to change „the dress“. Printed pattern has created an effect that we wanted. Our library’s concept is „brain tree“, the building sits in the front corner of the university campus and looks like a wooden block. Printed wood perennials have also been visualised as space sky with planets and stars by outside viewers. In terms of urban space, it is an intriguing building, people notice it and think of it. We are content with this solution and dare to recommend to everyone.“

Birgit Kibal, Head of Communication and External Relations of National Archive:
„Our facade canvas has been very durable and weatherproof, it creates cool effects when looking out with snow and ice. Tightened facade canvas is often mistakenly perceived as some other painted solid material and so people wandering outside Noora building have no idea that actually our employees have a very good visual on them from the windows behind the screen. Above all, however, the Groove pattern itself is important to us, which has given reason to the use of the same motif in our souvenirs, and we have also adopted it as a trademark.“
