As sauna is becoming more and more popular, architects are being asked to incorporate sauna within the design of a house, cabin, or cottage.
Sauna isn’t for everyone, but in this case, the homeowner is an authentic sauna enthusiast, not satisfied with a small electro-closet model, tucked into a corner or under stairs. For this homeowner, sauna is not akin to a laundry room or linen closet. For this homeowner, sauna is an integral part of living well. This sauna is wood burning and front and center. This sauna recycles the heat back into the cabin. The chimney stack is in the center of the cabin. The function not only radiates heat throughout the entire building but allows the chimney stack to share a primary fireplace glowing mightily within the hot room.
Just as AirBnB will sometime in the future offer a feature button for “sauna,” we are going to start seeing more cabin blueprints that are “sauna forward” in their design.
