On a small island just off the coast of Helsinki, the Lonna Sauna is restoring a sacred Finnish tradition. The building is constructed from handcrafted logs that were left unfinished, reminiscent of Finland's traditional saunas. In contrast, the sculpted zinc roof creates a contemporary form. Along with the warmth of the wood-burning stove, large windows allow in views of both the cityscape and open sea for a relaxing atmosphere to detox both your mind and body.
