Casa Haartman

Unique atelier home in Naantali town centre

Located in the heart of Naantali, Casa Haartman is the atelier home of the late artist Axel Haartman and his wife Hedvig. The building was designed by the Finnish architect Erik Bryggman in 1925 with Italian influences. Together with the plain façade, the richly decorated interiors and extensive art collection offer a unique and authentic architectural experience.

Axel and Hedvig Haartman’s artist residence displays original furniture, items, textiles and Haartman’s own works of art as well as art by Victor Westerholm, Fanny Churberg and Wäinö Aaltonen, among others. The plastered stone house, designed by Erik Bryggman and completed in 1926, represents Nordic classicism.

Axel Haartman (1877–1969) was born in Turku and grew up in the Saustila Manor in Sauvo and later on in Turku. His home and the surrounding lush garden were the inspiration for many of his paintings. His wife Hedvig (née Stolpe) was his favourite model. Axel Haartman was not only a painter, but also a critic, illustrator and culture correspondent. As the intendant at Turku Art Museum he played a major role in the art field of Finland. The Haartmans felt that their home was the most important work of Axel and wanted it to be preserved in its original state. The Åbo Akademi University Foundation owns and maintains Casa Haartman.

Casa Haartman was awarded the Ecocompass certificate in December 2023.

The museum is divided into two storeys, and the upper floor can only be access via stairs (no elevator). The corridors of the artist residence can be cramped in places due to the extensive collection of items.
