Recycled Exhaust Gases Power This Sauna Village
Sustainable resources are being used to fuel this luxurious getaway in Germany
A gorgeous sauna village tucked away in a German forest is run entirely on recycled energy. While it typically takes a great amount of energy to keep these type of environments heated, design firm Jeschke Architektur&Planung found a way to keep the village running that doesn't waste new energy.
The entire village is lit up with LEDs, and the saunas are heated with CHP (combined heat and power) units that are both cost-efficient and utilize recycled exhaust gas. Each sauna is constructed with its base as concrete whereas the interior and exterior is made up of wood. This setup works and fits in with this picturesque front overlooking a lake.
