Varbola village is located about 55 km south of Tallinn. It was there that neat houses with a zigzag roof were located, designed by architects Peeter Pere and Eva Kedelauk. “The old, already renovated bathhouse became the catalyst for the project,” they explain. “We had an idea to build a modern house around the old one, as if “wrapping” it.”

Viewed from a certain angle, the new structure seems to merge with the old, creating an eclectic and contrasting façade. The aluminum slope of the roof repeats the silhouette of the wooden one, then smoothly turns into a canopy and becomes the roof of the new sauna. Diamond-shaped openings are made throughout the structure to let in natural light, while skylights allow the birch trees to grow unhindered. “/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ceb82af95b6ff934500424b7f1716bf7.jpg” width=”728″ height=”485″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-371a4ab7=”1″ alt=”Polyline : sauna in Varbol (photo 4) .jpg” width=”728″ height=”485″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-371a4ab7=”1″ alt=”Polyline: sauna in Varbol (photo 5)” />Polyline: sauna in Varbol (fo then 6)
