Wingard Architecture | Mill House

“This house is a manifestation of the Swedish ritual of sauna and bathing. It is an annex to a large old farm in the countryside of southern Sweden, converted into a vacation house for a family from the nearby city of Malmo. Apart from the saunsa and attendant spaces for undressing, washing and relaxing, the Mill House is also a small dwelling. The traditional rite of sauna involved baking together and dashing out for an invigorating dip in a cold stream. The meagre creek on the property was insufficient for the purpose, however, so a small pool was built adjacent to the sauna.”
