Taking a sauna and canoeing as a main idea for the design proposal, it was important to find connections between two mentioned cultures, river, and taken
island, considering the conception of local businesses, neighbourhood and city needs.
Drawing parallels between each, and taking into account the change of water levels during autumn and spring, we designed a self-elevated walkway and platforms for each building unit, choosing timber as the main material for environmentally friendly reasons, for visitors to stay and walk through safely. Having harmoniously combined everything together, we created a place to experience the culture of sauna and enjoy the rural landscapes on the edge of the Gauja river.
