Shipping Container Transformed into a Sauna by Castor Canadensis

Residential Architecture: Sauna Box by Castor Canadensis – Shipping Container Transformed into a Sauna: “..canadian design studio castor canadensis have re-envisioned a common shipping container with more of a luxurious quality – the ‘sauna box’ – and is now available for purchase at the modest price of $41,000 (US). the ‘sauna box’ was created as a traditional wood-burning steam bath to embody multiple features – it is water tight; can be moved to any location; needs very little site preparation; has a wood fired stove and is also powered by solar panels. each unit is site specific and custom built with an outer skin fabricated from corten steel – a material that is known for enduring saltwater. the sculptural aesthetic evident throughout the design is continued to the interior with hand-made objects such as carved stone stools, stone sink, as well as wood and metal elements. the ‘box’ comes also standard with ipod stereo, electric guitar hook-up, castor-designed stoolmagnetic truck light and also bronze antlers!..”  Fabulous!  Toasty!
