Villa Schneider - a unique Art Nouveau style architectural pearl in Nõmme, Tallinn.
With the corner stone laid on May 24, 1922, the beautiful Art Nouveau castle was never really finished. Due to faults in blueprints and economical reasons the construction was somehow finished in 1939. During the second World War the house nationalized and served as social building for the next 50 years. During this time the interior was demolished and the basic constructions suffered serious damage. In the end of 1980-s the house was declared inhabitable and sold.
Growing up in this neighborhood I always admired this castle and dreamed of what it would be like to be in there. Dreams have power. We bought the house in the end of 2001. We ordered a new project and renovated one half of this majestic building. In 2007 came the economic crisis and our work stopped. We have managed to keep the house in the same condition and intend to finish the renovation this time, to give Nõmme back one of its most astonishing landmarks.
We intend to bring this fine Art Nouveau style architectural pearl into life again and open it up to public for gatherings and events and make it a local community center.
We are grateful for all the help and support we can get. This means a lot to us.
