1 minutes

The spectacular sauna in the Frihamnen area of Gothenburg has been nominated for this year's Kasper Salin prize. The prize is awarded annually by the Swedish Association of Architects to a Swedish building of high architectural class.  

The fascinating building in harbor has been designed by Architects from RaumlaborBerlin. The vision was to create a spectacular building made of recycled materials and with a beautiful view of the river. A place where everyone will be able to take a hot sauna bath - for free. The sauna is part of the project Bathing Culture in the Frihamnen area. Based on the vision of Älvstaden parts of the city center will be transformed. The city will be tied together over the river which will give an extended city center.

– The construction of this sauna is partly in honor of the fact that in six years we will be celebrating Gothenburgs 400th anniversary. Based on dialogue with the citizens, weare now making various important investments in the city, Lena Andersson, CEO of Älvdalen Development says.

The public sauna is free and open for all. Book the sauna online
