Agorà” is the name of the sauna, characterized by a peculiar triangular shape. Its location is on the small arctic, mountainous island of Sandhornøya in the Norwegian county of Nordland. Built on a quiet and pristine beach, the property directly overlooks the Norwegian Sea. Unlike other saunas, its design was meant to be large and open.

In fact, the front facade is mainly made up of glass panels that allow you to enjoy the breathtaking view of the place. The architect who designed it, Joar Nango, said he was inspired by ancient Norwegian building practices. The intent is to convey the idea of ​​being in a tent able to provide refreshment to adventurers tired from their journey.
