Famous finnish architects Eliel Saarinen, Herman Geselius and Armas Lindgren decided to construct their homes and shared architectoffice together. Buildings were erected during years 1901-1903 at the shore of the lake Vitträsk. Currently home of Saarinen acts as museum (entrance fee needed) and "Lilla Villan" (home of Geselius) as cafeteria and restaurant. There's also nice english styled park where you can wander and wonder without any payment. If you have enough energy you can also visit the shore, but there are long climb to get back. Near Hvitträsk are also some old rock paintings, but they are quite hard to see from the shore.
