World's most ecological sauna to open in Finland

Innovative Culture Sauna offers design experiences for steam-lovers during the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 program.

Culture Sauna includes two steam rooms, a small café, a cabinet and an office, and can be used to host different kinds of occasions like concerts, lectures and publishing events. Tsuboi and Toivonen promise design experiences for bathers starting from the smallest details of the building. About 50 foreign journalists have already visited the project.

“Finland has excellent energy efficiency know-how which, combined with our sauna traditions and the public sauna concept, has raised interest around the world from the perspective of urban culture as well as construction,” says architect Tuomas Toivonen.
