In 2016, a large-scale typographic solution of the end wall of the building at Akadeemia 34 at Mustamäe district was completed in result of the competition organised by the City Government of Tallinn. It presents extensive, yet simple routine information of the address of the building, while enlivening in structured and controlled way the standardised environment born during the Soviet period, which has rather grey look, especially in autumn and winter. The work is based on the font Arvo Bold designed by Anton Koovit. The solution was completed in cooperation between Anton Koovit, Rémi Boisbourdin, Veiko Liis, Carl Kagge, Uku Sepsivart and Kert Viiart in September 2016. The completed wall is one of the first of its kind. Inspired by the design, other similar solutions of end walls of panel dwellings have later been accomplished, but those have unfortunately been just occasional attempts. Couple of years later, another competition was announced, in order to find a similar solution, but as the same team did not participate, the solution of Akadeemia Street has remained unique in its professional execution.
