Grotto Sauna for winter cold days

 In these cold days of summer, a hot place is a must.

The Grotto Sauna perched at the north-west edge of a private island in Toronto, Canada is not only a cool place to relax, but also has a beautiful smooth design. The 800-square-foot freestanding sauna carefully sits on the island’s prehistoric rock formations.

 

The builders are the PARTISANS.  They’ve selected a concept of solid, simple presence on the exterior, while the interior followed dynamic air movements in curvature forms.
To minimize disturbance of the age-old rock, PARTISANS used a Leica 3D scanner to create a site model before working on the freestanding sauna design.
