The project is a small, triangular sauna placed in sloping terrain. Shutters with traditional diamond-shaped ornamentation cover the panoramic windows to protect them from the harsh climate. The shutters also enable a more intimate atmosphere inside the sauna. The exterior is covered with carbonized pine, while the interior contrasts the dark wood with bright, heat-treated ash. 

(The project is currently under construction).
