Wood Clad Grotto Sauna

Just in case you were looking for a little get away in the middle of nowhere in a high design, digitally fabricated wet dream. PARTISANS created a beautifully designed oasis in a scenic Canadian landscape.

The site is a prehistoric large-scale rock formation, which in turn selected the concept of a simple presence on the exterior, while the interior followed dynamic air movements in curvature forms. PARTISANS, along with the millwork and steel fabrication partners they worked hand in hand with, developed a new process of fabrication that utilized state of the art 3-D technology to scan, model and build the Grotto.
