Lauttasaari Manor is Kone Foundation’s new home, which the Foundation intends to make the new heart of art and science in Helsinki. There are working spaces for Foundation’s staff, in addition to which the manor serves as an open venue for a variety of events, such as debates, exhibitions and concerts. The Foundation aims to make the manor a welcoming space of fascinating encounters and multidisciplinary interaction in the fields of art and science.
Kone Foundation bought the Lauttasaari Manor in 2015, after which it thoroughly refurbished the main building, the Red Villa in the courtyard, and the manor park. The Lauttasaari Manor area is a historically layered place with great cultural, historical and architectural value.
