2016
 
Αrchitect emmett mcnamara’s ‘sauna’ offered warm coastal views on the shores of inisheer, one of a small group of remote islands off the irish mainland.

 

Τhe piece was developed over several months for the biennial ‘drop everything’ festival held on the island; an event that presents contemporary art from a rustic perspective.

The ‘sauna’ was influenced by local landmarks such as ‘currach’ and the standing stones. once visualized, construction was constructed over three months at the fire station artist studios in dublin before being shipped to the island for on-site assembly.

The form is composed of modular triangles built using traditional timber framing methods.

A foil moisture barrier and rock wool insulation keep the ‘sauna’ warm, and three large windows look out over the vast atlantic.

The ‘sauna’ was designed by emmett mcnamara to participate at the 2016 ‘drop everything’ festival.
