Since Finland is known for its sauna culture, sharing some suggestions below:
1. Kuopio Saana
Saana is a fell in Finnish Lapland. It is also a word in the Finnish Savo dialect and means sauna. However, Saana in the city of Kuopio is much more than a plain sauna. We do have three of those as well, but they represent only a small part of the impressive range of services we offer.
2. Löyly in Helsinki
The project started from the city of Helsinki initiative. Hernesaari is a former industrial area on the Helsinki seashore that is being developed into a residential area. New uses are being developed for the area, while waiting for future changes to come. There is a cruise ship harbor in Hernesaari and the city wanted to activate the area with new functions and to serve visitors with new attractions. We started the project in 2011 designing a temporary sauna village at the furthermost end of the peninsula. The concept didn’t prove financially sustainable so the first client quit the project. We developed a floating sauna with the second client but the concept proved impossible as the site faces the open sea and a floating structure couldn’t withstand high waves and pressure from ice packs. The coastline will change with future development, but the city chose an area where the shoreline will remain as it is currently. We developed a new free form concept with triangular faces. The client changed once again and as actor Jasper Pääkkönen and Member of Parliament Antero Vartia finally got funding, the construction works could begin.
