A Grotto Sauna on the Lake

Perched at the north-west edge of San Souci Island on Lake Huron, the 800 sq. ft. Grotto Sauna is a free-standing structure situated on a large-scale rock formation designed by Partisans. The selected concept for the Grotto prescribed a solid, simple presence on the exterior, while the interior followed dynamic air movements in curvature forms.

The Grotto uses two high performance ovens and there are vents and fans in-place that allow the building to breathe seasonally and prevent rot or mold in the structure. Cedar was selected for its resistance to rot, aroma, colour, local sources, and quality. The openings were fabricated in Ontario, Canada using double and triple glazed high-efficiency annealed glass. Be sure to check out the timelapse of the build below along with additional photos of this beautiful sauna.
