The interior of the steam room – the most sacred space of sauna – is held calm and sacral.
The spatial arrangement carries a symbolic connection back to the roots of mankind by placing the stove in the centre
of the room. People are sitting around the fire and enjoy the heat in a very archaic way. In that way they would con-
nect with both the fire and the people around, creating an intimate atmosphere, which might lead to sharing stories
and increased communication.
The ceiling shape is created in that way to distribute the steam equally in the sauna space, ensuring that there are no too hot and no very cool places in the sauna.
There is very restrained indirect LED lighting inside, which is reflecting the colour of the wood and contributing to the atmosphere in an unobtrusive way.
The sauna is elevated to fit the stove underneath and it is standing on feet, which lift the steam room visibly from the ground thus giving the building a light appearance. The stairs in front of the building create a threshold between outside and inside.
There is a humble round of pins added around the sauna in order to hang clothes or towels on them.
