Sitting quietly along the Stockholm archipelago, this private sauna by General Architecture is the ultimate space for those seeking some covert relaxation. Glad in larch wood paneling and heavy glass window panes, the minimalist dry sauna was built with patination in mind as the materials age with wear and weather. For more information, visit General Architecture . Above: Reachable by boat, the sauna sits on a dock made of the same larch wood. Above: The sauna, built as a uniform volume, appears as a small summer house when closed but opens to reveal its serene, spa-like interior. Above: Minimalist decor starts with the Skelton Oil Lamp from Danish designer Erik Magnussen. Above: When the sauna is not in use, windows and doors are shut to give the apparence of an archetypal house.
