Gallery: Rintala Eggertsson Architects’ Smoke Sauna Rests on Stilts by ...

 
Located on the banks of the beautiful Seljord Lake, the back shelters were raised on stilts with minimal impact on the ground.

Located on the banks of the beautiful Seljord Lake, the black shelters were raised on stilts with minimal impact on the ground. They were created as part of a workshop with the help from students and teachers from the Politecnico in Milan and the Norwegian Theatre Academy. A raised path pierced by trees was built to bring people into the shelters, slowly revealing the beauty concealed behind the structures.

A few bridges, also made from locally-sourced wood, were placed around the shelters, so people with bikes or wheelchairs can also have access. Contrasting with the pitch-black color that was used on the outside, the sauna’s wooden interior was left naturally untouched. Simple and humble, this group of Nordic shelters makes it easier to get into the landscape.
