No one makes more beautiful saunas than the fins. Here you have two crankshaft.
The dream bath is in an old barn
Created design homes of five containers

– The sauna is an essential part of Finnish culture, and these small buildings are perhaps the most traditions in the country, “said Lisa Sund of the Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute.
– It is said that we are five million inhabitants in Finland and that there are over two million saunas spread throughout the landscape from all the way south to high in the north. Some of these dream showers even float on the water.
The strong language of speech that the two architects use here is also evident in other sensational small-scale projects in Finland, the director of Finnish-Norwegian cultural institute Jan Förster explains to Bonytt.com

In the period 18 August to 17 September, you can also see the very latest Finnish design, Finnish Designer Awards, in Oslo.
BATHROOM NO. 1:
The architect behind the project we first show here, Niko Sirola in the K2S in Helsinki, shone the streamlined building of 35 square meters humbly in place between the tall, lush trees. Here it should not be chopped more than necessary.
Back to road
Niko Sirkola shaped the small house like a big “V” with the closed, repulsive wall without windows facing the road on the upper side of the sauna.
A resting place for body and mind
The wide opening of the V then points in the opposite direction, towards the shallow sea.
A spacious veranda has been created, a ramp along the entire front of the sauna. This is the perfect, sheltered retreat where you relax after a refreshing dip or just after a wonderful cleansing in the sauna.
Windows against the water
In addition, the sauna includes a living room with large windows facing the water and the view.
Swings above the ground
The building is built and positioned so that it follows the contours of the terrain, and with only smearing steel columns to foundation it seems that the entire sauna house floats above the ground.
The roof creates a whole
A so-called plywood roof pave binds together the so-called volumes of the building consist of a harmonious whole.
Woodwork – All Over
Large sections of the façade are made of coarse timber of larch, a wood material that turns beautifully silver gray after a few years. It is laid horizontally and protected by a meter-long roof protrusion.
Made for warm experiences
The interior of the sauna is paneled with orthogonal heat resistant material. The same applies to the seat benches made in osp.
Behind the wall!
The road to the road has a lot smoother game management. It is effectively shielded by the whole wall rather a bit beyond. This is a special finesse that gives the building the extra touch of i-one.
– For us, the sauna is a place to relax with family and friends, and one of the most important is to create atmosphere and well-being during the sauna. This is a form of ancient, national culture, “says Jan Förster.
A holy place
– Many consider the sauna almost as a holy place, and usually the goal of the builder is to lay the sauna house so that it melts with nature around.
BATHROOM NO 2: Both sauna and cabin
This sauna, located idyllically on the small island of Lake Kaavinjärvi, is built on the ruins of an old smoking bath.
Although the architect, Seppo Häkli wanted to create a brand new building, he was faithful to the proud Finnish building traditions.
Two small handy cleaners
He designed a cabin / sauna facility of two hand-held sections; a cabin and a saunadel. Between these two, a shielded atrium is formed. It opens with two large glass sliding doors into the main house.
Slow after dive
This place is by no means the perfect, healthy place to stay after a refreshing bath tub or a dip in the flowing water right next to.
The facility also consists of a changing room and an outdoor kitchen.
Beautiful view to two sides
The inner, covered area facing the center of the island has two tall wooden doors. From this outside room there is a view of a beautiful birch forest.
From the plate on the other side of the cabin is the view of a little healthy and over the lake itself.
The experienced craftsman as the patchwork and snoring facility was involved in the planning of the project. And architect Seppo Häkli contributed himself to the construction of both the sauna and the cottage.
