SELECTED STEAM AND SAUNA DESIGNS
DARK ALDER SAUNA
For the solid robust look.
Fitted in the basement of a six storey townhouse, this is a very rich combination of dark sauna wood, split face slate tiles, and a drum sauna heater with almost 100kg stones, ideal to splash water on to raise the humidity in the sauna sharply and feel the intense heat.
STEAM SAUNA COMBO
Best of both with a handy shower.
Designed by Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin and installed in the basement of a Hampstead house, this sauna and steam combination is made of Aspen wood and Italian Dolomite stone. Both steam and sauna are controlled by similar looking touchscreens and the shower in the middle is shared by the adjoining swimming pool.
To soften the brutalist pool hall.
The project brief from the designers of this minimalistic contemporary home was for the sauna to follow the straight lines of the pool and associated facilities, and that was achieved by having a black sauna shell clad in aspen slats and a matching basic bench.
FEATURE WALL SAUNA
As bespoke as it gets.
As the customers were very keen to show off a specialist plaster finish in the whole pool/spa/sauna area, we decided to keep the wall in plaster and put the benches on the other two walls. The sauna heater stones match the feature wall finish and soft lighting finishes the look.
Form follows function, built to last.
Designed for a bather load of up to 6 in a commercial setting, this sauna is finished in our standard aspen panels complete with split-face slate tiles so as not to break the bank but still look decent. The 18kW three phase heater does the job brilliantly.
CAVE STEAM ROOM
For the perfect steam meditation.
This minimalistic steam room is very atypical of the bright steam rooms we usually install, only one color and style of tiles is used on the bench and walls, and the ceiling is made of acrylic panels for safety reasons.
DEEP THERAPY SAUNA
Put to the maximum humidity test.
Our clients instructed us to design a sauna that would run at higher temperatures for extended periods of time and with lots of water going on to the heater. So we made this entire sauna out of heavy-duty cedar bench timber and it came out looking fantastic.
PLAIN SIMPLE SAUNA
Simple lines, elegant lighting.
Designed and built for occasional use, the client brief was to keep the standard of the material reasonable and to keep the budget realistic. This sauna is made out of ASPEN square cut cladding and ASPEN 90mm standard bench timber. One single LED strip lights up the entire sauna and does the trick.
GENEROUSLY SIZED HAMMAM
Traditional cleansing and rejuvination.
This travertine-clad hammam is fairly simple in layout and apart from the 15kW commercial steam generator, it is made entirely out of commonly available materials. This is a classic example of 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'.
SMALL BASEMENT SAUNA
An amalgam of different materials.
We were invited to install a small two-seater sauna in the basement of this mews house, and the customer wanted to have as little wood as possible. The installation has one fixed L-shaped backrest, two portable benches and a sauna heater cover made out of aspen and the walls are finished in stucco plaster.
