This house is a real find and only about an hour by car from Helsinki city centre. It is set in an elevated position above a lake and seemed on the grey misty day that we visited, to be in a world of its own....More

I'm not much of a history buff, and although I appreciate architecture as much as the next guy, I wasn't very impressed with this "museum." Initially a house for a group of Finnish architects, Hvittrask is now an open museum. It features everything you would...More

This is a fair drive from the centre of Helsinki but if you are an architecture fan YOU NEED TO SEE THIS ... it's Jugend in one package ! From the design of the hinges to the doors, the arches to the slope of the...More

Hvittrask is built above a lake; it's a compound of buildings first designed and occupied by three Finnish architects about a century ago. But it doesn't feel dated at all--it's as "modern" in its sensibility as the gleaming buildings of downtown Espoo, nearby. It's fascinating...More

The home of famous Finnish Art Noveau architects - Gesellius, Lindgren and Saarinen - lies in wilderness on a high hill on the lake Hvitträsk in Kirkkonummi about 30 km west of Helsinki. It is really interesting if you like Art Noveau and like to...More

Hvitträsk is situated outside of Helsinki, so you have to take a bus or a train (to Kirkkonummi) to go there, but it is surely worth the visit. If you like the design of Helsinki Central railway station or the National museum, you'll love Hvitträsk....More
