Perched at the northwest edge of an island in Georgian Bay, Canada, the Grotto Sauna is a feat of old-world craftsmanship and new-world sustainability made possible by cutting-edge technology. When the clients - avid architecture and design enthusiasts - commissioned the studio to build a sauna, they wanted “to be surprised” by the out-of-the-ordinary and to be part of a creative storytelling process. Inspired by an Italian grotto - a secret and sacred water-filled cave - the experimental design pays homage to the extremities of the landscape to forge a compelling architectural experience.
