Hvitträsk is also a very popular venue for private occasions, companies and private persons alike. In addition, it is a very popular tourist attraction.

 


Hvitträsk was built 1901-1903, by three architects, Herman Gesellius, Armas Lindgren and Eliel Saarinen. The main building,
designed in National Romantic style, built of logs and natural stone, was both a common studio and a home for Eliel Saarinen and Armas Lindgren.
Gesellius lived in the courtyard building. The Saarinen home is a museum today.
 
The museum itself together with the unique surroundings offers all kinds of possibilities for private parties.
The main building served both as an architectural office and as a cultural home, and it was visited by such great figures as Gallen-Kallela and Maksim Gorki.
The office's staff also lived at Hvitträsk, and this is where the plans were drawn up for the Helsinki Railway Station,
the National Museum of Finland and the monumental Munkkiniemi-Haaga project.
Hvitträsk and the garden in English style are surrounded by beautiful nature.
