Sauna Sanctuary

Designed and built in collaboration with Ben Falk & David Johnson of Whole Systems Design, LLC, this meticulously-crafted structure provides a hot sanctuary in the middle of Vermont's freezing winters. Built with locally milled lumber and plastered with natural lime, this building is a testament to responsible material usage. The custom stained-glass windows echo the surrounding hillsides and apple-orchards. Upon completion of the project, we discovered that the setting sun cast a shadow of an apple tree on the wall of the building that is nearly identical in silhouette to the tree in the glass. Beautiful serendipity.
