A home right next to a park in a relaxed urban environment by the sea – Helsingin Samla has it all! The available homes range from convenient studios to five-room family apartments and 2-storey loft-style urban homes.
Samla's homes offer charming and abundant natural light.
This is thanks to the large, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows and the balcony’s sliding glass door which is almost the size of the entire wall. High-quality material choices and smart space solutions ensure carefree living. Each apartment has an individual cooling system to alleviate summer heat waves.
In Samla, you can live a communal and eco-smart everyday life with shared cars, a laundry and drying room provided by the housing company, shared sauna facilities and a village centre where you can host parties and other events of your own. The sheltered and cozy courtyards also help create a sense of community. In addition to apartments, there are plans for a day care centre, a grocery store, cafés and restaurants in the Grööna block.

Our environmental acts
In 2019, we committed to halve the material emissions of our residential buildings by 2030, and we aim to heat YIT Homes carbon neutrally.
This is how we aim to achieve these objectives in Helsingin Samla:
Among other things, carbon footprint calculations are used in residential construction for choosing materials that place less burden on the environment.
Renewable electricity at a construction site
Wind-generated electricity is the only source of energy used at construction sites.
Recycling at a construction site
At least 75% of the construction waste at a construction site is being sorted for recycling.
Kitchens, bathrooms and toilets are equipped with water-saving water fixtures such as taps.
Recycling at a housing company
In a pipeline-based collection system the waste is inserted into the pipe through a hatch located on the external wall of the residential building. The waste travels straight through the pipe to a recycling location, which makes the use of garbage trucks redundant.
Waste sorting system at home
Keittiössä on kierrätystä helpottava lajittelupiste.
Zero-emission energy helps in covering the energy consumption of technical building systems, such as ventilation, and the building’s shared facilities.
Electric car charging points
All the parking spaces include the option to install a charging point for an electric vehicle, which makes the installation of the charging device possible as needed.
Being able to rent a shared car in the housing company in an easy and affordable manner reduces the need for an own car.
Apartment-specific monitoring of consumption in YIT’s own service channel (YIT Plus) helps in water-saving.
Monitoring of technical building systems
YIT’s Valvomo-service (Control room) takes care of, for example, the energy-efficient use of ventilation and heating.
