A Scandinavian-style home in the most sought-after location in Kalamaja, bordered by some of the city’s biggest drawcards: the sea, the Old Town and the Creative Hub
Klaussoni Kommivabrik is situated on the Old Town side of the suburb of Kalamaja, which is renowned for its architectural and historical value. Despite its location, it finds itself in a quiet spot that sees little traffic. The sea, the city centre and the port area are all nearby, offering some of the city’s best eateries and entertainment.

The high ceilings and chequered floor-to-ceiling windows in the trendy loft-style apartments create spacious, light-filled interiors

The suburb of Kalamaja is well known for its timber architecture, but it’s also home to an old candy factory. There’s no other complex like it in the city.
The sandstone street-side building and adjacent courtyard building are being reconstructed on the former Klausson Candy Factory site. Dating from 1904, these structures are of great historical and architectural value. The sandstone elements of the buildings are being restored as much as possible to their original state, while the doors and windows will retain their original shape but be fully replaced.
The lofts come with both balconies and private terraces, all overlooking the Old Town.

The factory is surrounded by the best the city has to offer – the sea, the Old Town, the city centre and the historical setting of the Creative Hub are all within an easy stroll

Klaussoni Kommivabrik and its surroundings represent one of the most unique parts of the city

  • Spacious loft-type apartments with ceilings up to 4.6 metres high
  • Private courtyard with its own herb garden, relaxation spaces, pergola, playground and barbecue area
  • Shopping and entertainment centres, cultural venues, educational institutions and the biggest choice of cafés and restaurants are all within an easy stroll
  • A leafy seaside district close to the city centre and Old Town that is highly sought-after
  • Safe and convenient connections on foot, by bike, by car and on public transport

The catchword for both the interiors and exteriors of the buildings on the Klausson Candy Factory site is ‘Scandinavia’. All of the buildings take their names from iconic designers: Aalto, Jacobsen and Panton.

The factory lofts offer your family space, light and character
The trendy loft-type apartments in the Klausson Candy Factory boast everything you expect of a home with an industrial touch: high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and airy and spacious rooms, all supported by interior design in light tones and high-quality natural materials.

The carefully considered solution for the courtyard of the Klausson Candy Factory will generate a sense of community while also providing privacy

The barbecue area will be perfect for enjoying with family and friends, while the relaxation spaces and pergola will provide ideal spots for socialising or unwinding on your own.

Klausson Candy Factory – 100 years of history in the heart of Kalamaja

The chocolate and candy factory dates back to 1920 when Rudolf Klausson bought the land at 5 Jahu Street
The Klausson factory started out life as a modest family affair but soon expanded, employing 99 people by the final years of the first Estonian Republic. It mainly produced chocolates, chocolate bars, halva and cookies.
The factory was both a workplace and a home to Rudolf Klausson – he and his family lived on the upper floor of the building
