Bureau A Builds a Tiny Levitating Sauna On a Factory Rooftop in Geneva
Posted By Ana Lisa On January 2, 2013 @ 1:30 pm In Architecture,Environment,Zero energy | No Comments
Floating above the roof of the old Kugler factory in the center of Geneva  is a simple wooden sauna to be shared by local creatives. Its design is very basic, and it looks similar to an adapted DIY shed. The sauna’s access is through a small wooden catwalk that hovers a few feet above the factory roof.
The structure is made entirely from treated pinewood and its corrugated polycarbonate roof protects it from the elements. The minimal interior includes a wood-burning stove that provides enough heat  and steam for sheltering during the snowy Swiss  winters. During summer, the shed can be used as a space for reading, meditating or just getting away from it all.
