Painiitty residential area

Painiitty is a new idyllic neighbourhood in Espoo, right outside of Helsinki. Painiitty feels calm and cozy but it’s close to all the services and major traffic routes.

Building the neighbourhood has been a long-time project of construction company Hartela. Hartela purchased the land in 1980s and it has had the chance to take part in the planning of the area from the very beginning. The plan was to create a comfortable new residential area close to the attractions of Finland’s biggest cities – and it seems like it succeeded.

We photographed the lovely little community and its new residential buildings for Hartela.
