Zaha Hadid Architects of UK working with Esplan of Estonia have been awarded first place in the design competition for the new terminal of the Rail Baltic railway at Olemiste in Tallinn. Rail Baltic is a planned 870 km electrified railway from Tallinn in Estonia to the Lithuanian Polish border. The terminal will be the starting point of the Rail Baltic line connecting Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius with the European high-speed rail network. The Ulemiste terminal is designed as a connecting public bridge used by the local community as well as multi-modal transport hub for commuters, national and international rail passengers in addition to air travelers using the adjacent Tallinn airport.

Circulation routes through the building have determined the station's spatial geometry to aid navigation and the smooth integration of bus, tram and rail lines that intersect at the terminus.

Incorporating a modular structural system built in phases to enable ongoing operations on the rail lines throughout construction, the station has been designed and planned to BREEAM benchmarks and guidelines.
