There's nothing more Swedish than a sauna. What sets the Bruksvagen Sauna apart is its unique site. Sitting on a wooden platform, the structure floats on the surface of a lake. Its fir-clad exterior incorporates traditional Japanese techniques with a Shou Sugi Ban finish, while also blending itself into the landscape. Internally, and alder wood interior contrasts the charred facade. A large glazed panel immerses occupants in the serene setting by offering views of the water and the surrounding birch forest.
