Zauna | workshop for the European Architecture Students Assembly.

Our goal for this workshop was to create a relaxation place as a new attraction for Letterfrack in relation to its environment and activities, additionally leaving an EASA footprint in the area.

We set of to build a compact version of the earlier intention and moved the dressing room in the design in front of the sauna arm to create an antechamber as a buffer and adaptation space in between the outside cold and the inner heat.

The whole construction is principally made of wood: coated panels on the outside, a thick inner structure packed with insulation, inner wooden panels and a cedar plank finishing. The furniture was designed and made on the spot. The big window and entrance curtain are made from woven plastic flaps that one might encounter when entering the colder vegetable and fruit section in the bigger supermarkets around.
