Kaivopuisto Housing

Espoo, Finland

Kaivopuisto Apartments in Espoo are located in Leppävaara beside a district of old villas.

The villas are a vestige of the first town-like locality in Espoo, which began to form in Leppävaara as a result of building a railway halt in 1904. Lars Sonc designed the town plan for Alberga villa community in 1908.

The architecture of the project is of delightfully high quality.
