In the eastern part of Arctic Norway, by the Varangerfjord, the tradition of sauna is strong. In cold climate nothing beats hot steam. HALLSTEIN has designed the new public sauna for the city of Vadsø. It is to be located on the tip of the wave breaker in Ytrebyfjæra – the eastern beach. Made from solid timber logs with the outside burnt to ashes, it will sustain the harshest of weathers coming in from the nearby Barents sea.
