Hvitträsk

Hvitträsk, named after Lake Vitträsk (literally White Lake), was designed and built between 1901-1903 by Finish architects H. Gesellius, A. Lindgren and E. Saarinen to be a common studio and a home. In 1903, once the main building was completed, Saarinen moved to the South Wing with his wife, Lindgren and his family to the North Wing and Gesellius to Little Villa.


Over  the  following  decades,  the  residence  passed  from  hand  to  hand  until  1971,  when,  owned  by  Gerda  and  Salomo  Wuorio  Foundation,  it  was  opened  to  the  public.  In  1981,  the  Finnish  State  purchased  the  property,  but  it  was  not  until  1996  that  began  the  reparation  and  restoration  works,  directed  by  interior  designer  Markku  Nors  and  landscape  architect  Gretel  Hemgård’s.  Nowadays,  Hvitträsk  houses  a  museum  and  it  can  be  visited  from  February  to  September.
