The Mill House is a manifestation of the Swedish ritual of sauna and bathing. It is an annex to a large old farm in the countryside of southern Sweden, converted into a vacation house for a family from the nearby city Malmő. Apart from the sauna and the attendant spaces for undressing, washing and relaxing, the Mill House is also a small dwelling. The traditional rite of sauna involves baking together and dashing out for an invigorating dip in a cold stream.

The meagre creek of the on the property was insufficient for the purpose, however, so a small pool was built adjacent to the sauna. The exposed construction demanded carpentry of unusual excellence. In combination with the intimate size, it promotes the atmosphere of a Zen masters tea house.
