Bauhaus is a privately owned German retail chain established in 1960, which currently operates more than 270 department stores in various European countries. The chain’s product range consists of more than 120,000 construction and gardening products. Upon expanding to Estonia, Bauhaus decided to build their first store in the developing shopping and entertainment complex Tähesaju City, located at the intersection of Mustakivi and Laagna tee in Lasnamäe. The area was subject to a detailed spatial plan prepared by K-Projekt for the property at Varraku 10, under which the property was divided into plots and building rights were established for the construction of commercial buildings. The nearly 4.5-hectare plot where the Bauhaus building was built also contains the source of the name of the whole area: the protected natural asset Meteorite Impact Crater in Tondi Bog. The latter has also been a font of inspiration for the names of the streets in the area: Tähesaju (English: Meteor Shower), Kuukivi (Moonstone), etc. K-Projekt developed the designs for road construction, parking lots and entrances, and external utility networks (water supply and sewerage, external electricity networks, street lighting, telecommunication cables, and heating supply). The cornerstone was laid on 2 October 2009 and the completed shopping centre at Tähesaju tee 9 was opened on 9 April 2010. The second Bauhaus store was opened in 2017 in Rocca al Mare in Tallinn. The design of the parking areas and access roads around this commercial building was organically tied to the simultaneous reconstruction of the street of Rannamõisa tee. In addition, K-Projekt designed the service areas of the store, the landscape architecture, and the external utility networks.
