With Loyly Helsinki offers foreign visitors a public sauna experience, a must when visiting Finland. The building was designed slim and elongated so as not to cut the narrow park. The volume is kept as low as possible so that it doesn't block views from the future residential blocks. The sauna is developed into an easy-going, faceted construction that is more part of the park than a conventional building. When the wooden building turns gray, it will become more like a rock on the shoreline. The project was first fully FSC-certified building in F inland and second in Scandinavia.
