Tehtaanmäki Elementary School was designed in 1938-39 and taken into use in 1940. The school is associated with the Tehtaanmäki industrial area in Inkeroinen, where Aalto designed both alterations to existing buildings and new ones as well. The role of Aalto’s office was more pronounced in the planning of the residential areas and the Tehtaanmäki school.
