A tucked-away sauna and restful space in Cheltenham
A sauna and restful space nestled amongst the undergrowth deep in the garden. A place to feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
Design inspiration for this project was taken from the client's family connection to Canada where Cedar shingles are commonly found in the local- vernacular architecture. This traditional style of cladding performs exceptionally well in wet climates due to the timber being split rather than sawn.
Designed within the regulations of permitted development, the floor plan was drawn up to maximise the space in a triangular corner of the garden. The sauna utilises this rear corner location to provide a private and secluded relaxation area.
Beyond that, a wider social space faces out to the rest of the garden with a generous deck that provides an outdoor cooking area. Mature planting and a meandering path adds privacy and intrigue when approaching the cabin.
