At first glance the Grotto sauna may look like a traditional cabin (albeit perched on rocky cliffs), but the interior is full of surprising natural curves. Designed by the PARTISANS design group, the experimental architecture seems simple on the outside, but the inside "followed dynamic air movements in curvature forms." The firm worked closely with both a mill work and steel fabricator on the project to create a new process. They also used 3D technology in scanning, modelling and building the Grotto sauna.
The idyllic location cannot be ignored either. Nestled in the rocky shores of Lake Huron, the sauna is built on the edge of a private island. While the exterior matches its surroundings, the interior offers a more sculptural and sensory experience.
