A' Design Award and Competition is pleased to inform that the design project Grotto Sauna by PARTISANS has been announced as a winner of the Platinum A' Design Award in Architecture, Building and Structure Design Competition Category.

Details of Grotto Sauna
PARTISANS, the creative mind behind the award winning Architecture design Grotto Sauna said “Perched at the northwest edge of an island in Georgian Bay, Canada, the Grotto Sauna is a feat of old-world craftsmanship and new-world sustainability made possible by cutting-edge technology. When the clients - avid architecture and design enthusiasts - commissioned the studio to build a sauna, they wanted “to be surprised” by the out-of-the-ordinary and to be part of a creative storytelling process. Inspired by an Italian grotto - a secret and sacred water-filled cave - the experimental design pays homage to the extremities of the landscape to forge a compelling architectural experience.” Learn more:
