Located in Helsinki, Finland, Löyly is a waterfront sauna, designed by Avanto Architects in 2016. The project with a gross floor area of 1071m² (11,528ft²) is a part of the future coastal park landscape.
Hernesaari area is a former industrial area on the Helsinki sea shore that will be built into a residential area. New use is developed for the area already now while waiting for the future change. Traditional sauna is developed into an easy-going undulating building that is more part of the future coastal park landscape than a conventional building. Interesting views open up to city centre and even to open sea between wooden lamellas. The whole building forms also a huge outdoor auditorium for the activities on the sea. Löyly offers foreign visitors a public all year round sauna experience – a must when visiting Finland.
