Dry Heat: A Private Sauna on a Swedish Fjord

Issue 80 · The Summer Bedroom · July 11, 2013

Sitting quietly along the Stockholm archipelago, this private sauna by General Architecture is the ultimate space for those seeking some covert relaxation.

Glad in larch wood paneling and heavy glass window panes, the minimalist dry sauna was built with patination in mind as the materials age with wear and weather. For more information, visit General Architecture.
