Toivo Tammik, a lecturer of the Institute of Architecture of the TTK UAS, was one of the architects of the new concert and performance building of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. The centre features a concert hall accommodating 482 people, a black box theatre with 130 seats, and 21 new classrooms.

According to the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, the state-of-the-art building cost approximately 12 million euros took one and a half years to construct.

At the heart of the 6,000 square metre concert and performance facility, there is a concert hall through four floors with 482 seats, which will be ideal for classical performances as well as other styles of music. The audience can enter the concert hall with two galleries through the main building of the academy and from Sakala and Tatari streets, so it can be flexibly used for studies and as a public event venue. Currently, there is no other concert hall in Tallinn with the capacity for almost half a thousand people, so the new building is filling this niche.

The black box with 130 seats extends through three floors and will be used by drama students and jazz musicians. The five-storey building with a basement floor also houses 21 classrooms, including a multimedia centre and a jazz classroom. There is access to the main building of the academy from all the floors of the concert and performance centre.
