History

The Train Factory, Valila, is an integral part of the industrial heritage of Helsinki and Finland.  Founded in 1903, the factory built VR’s passenger and goods wagons until the 1990s. They played a key role in the payment of war reparations and in the post-war industrialisation of Finland.

But ‘Konepaja’ was not just a company. It was like a miniature city. A community whose shared stories and pastimes, numerous clubs and unique workshop spirit led to beers after the work day, joint vacations, and lifelong friendships.  As an industrial building complex, The Train Factory is unique, a gem of its era.

Fast forward to 2018...

…and the industrial area of The Train Factory was discovered by the former US ambassador Bruce Oreck and his business partners. They saw the possibilities of the area and want to raise it to a new flourishing, a new and exciting cultural centre that respects its past. The goal is nothing less than to create a new landmark for Helsinki that the whole city can proudly present – the city’s new living room.

The old industrial area is being reborn as the beating heart of Helsinki’s urban culture, in a style that until now has only been seen in the world’s metropolises. The Train Factory’s stylish office, studio and workspaces, specially designed for the needs of creative industries, will stand out from all competitors.

Its attraction has already brought numerous headquarters to the area, and the whole area pulsates with a positive spirit of change and dynamic creativity day and night.
