Architect Ari Leinonen’

Architect Ari Leinonen’s design for a floating sauna has captured the mystical quality of the traditional Finnish sauna in an innovative floating form—a floating structure of timber that blends the modern with the traditional. The sauna is built on a floating pontoon, which can easily be towed to any proposed site with access to water. The sauna building is made of solid timber formed using laminated wood technology. The plan allows for separate changing, washing and sauna rooms. The sloping rear wall to the sauna room provides an extremely comfortable sitting position, while the generous volume allows the heat to be soft and relaxing. The thoughtfully designed window allows natural light into the sauna while enabling relaxing, tranquil views of the surrounding water and dappled reflections. The external form offers natural protection from the breeze after enjoying a cooling post sauna dip.
