Grotto Sauna by Partisans Studio

Saunas aren’t typically praised for their forward thinking design, but the team at Partisans Studio decided to change all that with their Grotto Sauna.

Nestled on a giant rock formation along the edge of a private island just north of Toronto, Canada, this sauna is a thing of beauty. Inspired by grottos, the 800-square foot room is equipped with everything you’d expect from a traditional sauna – from the coal basin to the benches. What you wouldn’t expect is the way it’s all put together and presented. The wood-clad design was almost entirely constructed before being transported to the live site by boat and the designers used 3D technology to to scan, model and build the entire cave-like setup. There are several circular windows, and even a large skylight above letting plenty of natural light through while at the same time giving visitors the ability enjoy the stunning surrounding scenery.
