Sauna Werner

A house in a house

Project description:

In 2016 Talli designed rental sauna facilities for Cable Factory with “a house in a house” idea. The modern interpretation of the traditional log sauna enables wet-space construction without damaging existing structures of the premises.   

While sitting on the sauna benches one gets to enjoy the unhampered views to three directions across the Helsinki horizon opening from the windows of “Sauna Werner”. The concept that activates and makes use of the roof space of Helsinki is useful for renovation and extension building in the city center area.
