What elements make for a great sauna design?

While sharing a sauna with a couple architect friends and a contractor, as the endorphins started rushing, voices started rising, and concepts became more agreed upon, I started jotting down some of the key elements about designing and building a sauna.

Elements for a great sauna

TRANSLATIONS:

  • outdoor shower
  • double glass door to outside
  • lighting: dimmers & control center to set the vibe
  • nature wins
  • glass to lake – all windows
  • tall ceilings (in changing room)
  • sound system
  • deck wrap around
  • symmetry
  • simple, elegant treatments
  • large overhangs

What can you add to this list?
