SAUNA AND GUEST ROOM

Ærø, Denmark
2019

Extension to family country house on an island in the southern sea of Denmark.The Client wanted a crossfunctional building: A sauna, a guest room, an elevated terrace and a framework for the plants and trees. The building is placed in one of the most fertile corners of the site between apple trees and roses. Therefore the building had to make space for the nature as well as the people.

A big espalier frames the single room. Inside the room the sauna benches easily converts to a double bed. The terrace on top is connected to the existing building via a small bridge.
