Aerola's new residential area is located in the immediate vicinity of Aviapolis Station. The heart of the area is Alvar Aalto’s Aero OY’s (Finnair's predecessor) housing designed for aircraft mechanics in the 1950s, with sauna and laundry facilities. New buildings respect the history and spirit of the area. Colors and materials are made of bricks and white plating in Alvar Aalto's heritage.
