Thermal Mass Sauna Stack


Anders Berensson Architects has designed a Sauna as a cave like stack of wood studs where the thermal mass of the timber absorbs heat and releases it when bathing. The design was commissioned and made in dialogue with legendary photographer and sauna connoisseur Mikkel Aaland in Ulefoss Norway. Mikkel asked for a design of an organic shaped wooden sauna with the finish Sauvasauna as role model. To do so we had to reinvent both the structure and the building physics of the modern Nordic sauna. Please read more about the project by clicking on the link below.
