Sunila residential area by architect Alvar Aalto is internationally the best known architectural destination in the Kotka-Hamina region. It is the largest project realized according to Aalto’s plan. The area consists of the manager’s residence Kantola and the sauna, 12 row and block houses, and maintenance buildings. The Sunila factory and the residential area became the icon of Aalto’s interpretation of international modernism, which was presented at the World Exhibitions in Paris and New York, in 1937 and 1939. The area is protected in the Detailed Plan due to its architectural and cultural-historical importance.

Part of Sunila is known because Alvar Aalto designed it. You got to be deeply involved with architecture to find excitement in visiting the area. To me it looked like a regular suburb and a very big factory.
