Bespoke Aspen Sauna Installed in Garden Pavilion for Twickenham Client
Leisurequip were commissioned to design and install a bespoke aspen sauna for an award winning home located on bank of the river Thames near Twickenham. The sauna was to be made from Aspen wood with a full glass front and to be installed in the garden pavilion.
Glass fronted design
We were commissioned to provide a glass front bespoke sauna with remote switching from the main house 300m away. This was achieved using a wireless signal connection from the electronic control system in the main residence. The signal was bounced down to a receiver at the pavilion.
The client’s wife was from Finland and so uses the pool all year round. Both she and her husband wanted that extra luxury of an outdoor pool pavilion with an aspen sauna that they could use after their swim. Traditional sauna bathing in Finland and other Scandinavian countries is part of their daily routine and an important part of Scandinavian culture.
The foundation to this bespoke aspen sauna was constructed in Sweden and manufactured by Tylo. Leisurequip have an extensive history of sauna expertise. We are a Tylo UK trademark dealer / installer. Notably, we’re one of only a handful of expert sauna companies in the UK that could complete a project such as this.
About the installation
This exceptionally high profile sauna installation was constructed and fitted on-site into the clients’ newly constructed modern garden pavilion. The extensive and beautiful gardens contain modern art work sculptures. Everything harmoniously integrates into the newly designed contemporary pavilion by Keith Whitworth Architects.
The garden pavilion is situated at the far end of the exercise pool. It has a relaxing glazed area with circular wood burning stove. This overlooks the pool and gardens and at the rear of this area are changing facilities and showers. Additionally there is an adjoining contemporary pergola. The pergola puts the finishing contemporary design touches to this outdoor entertaining and wellness area.
