How would you like a backyard sauna with a view? Also, you probably already noticed the flowing lines of the wooden interior seating. Summer saunas are good. Winter saunas can be great. And if you live up north, the cold season lasts a long time, so there are plenty of occasions to use one of these.
This sauna design is by Studio Smeets (note: it’s not “Studios Meet”). The design brand is the work of Thijs Smeets, who founded the studio in 2007.
He designs a lot of interior furnishings and decor. Chairs, tables, couches, stands, bowls, and a lot of other things. You can see his work at his website (click here).
The sauna design, however, is meant to NOT look, in Smeets’ words, “like a Finish wooden box.”
He designed the sauna “as a piece of furniture that enriches the interior or garden.”
I guess this sauna could well be placed inside a house, as a sort of modular unit, and could be transported the way modular construction is transported. However, having a ton of steam inside your house is something you’d want to research and understand first.
Some sauna’s are quite plain, and even slipshod — because they’re sometimes just backwoods throw-togethers, they can look a bit unsightly perhaps. But then there’s ones like this.
The sauna has a main steam room with wooden slats that form a recliner-style seating area. Beside that is a shower area, and outside the building is a porch. It has large glass windows that would provide a view of the surrounding nature — although it would get a bit steamy and streaky.
