Architecture firm Matteo Foresti has designed a modern sauna that sits above Stockholm’s archipelago of islands.

Designed as a black box that’s embedded into the rocks, the small sauna is a warm and cozy space illuminated from the inside.

At the front of the sauna, a deck provides a place to relax outside and take in the water views.

The interior, which features the sauna, a small kitchen, and a bathroom, is just as black as the exterior. Both dark wood and Negresco quartzite stone walls and floors have been used throughout.
