Finnish Sauna by a Lake
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
The Scandinavian devotion to the sauna is well documented: this Nordic hot house, devised by UK-based Denizen Works for a family in Finland, has the added appeal of portability. Made from locally sourced timber and recycled windows, the structure cost less than $6,000 to build; during the winter months, it can be towed out onto the frozen lake aboard a wooden raft. During the warmer months, it sits on the land, perched atop removable concrete blocks. To see additional photos and to read more about the project, go to Dezeen . Photographs by Tiina Tervo .
