Project details

Interior made of certified polar spruce

In February 2017, Tropical Islands Management GmbH approached us, asking for an idea and proposal for an exceptional sauna attraction that would complement the diverse Tropical Islands Sauna & Spa facilities. That is how we came to design an Australian sauna in the form of a Palaneri clay hut. The project was completed in the last quarter of 2017. The Palaneri clay hut invites sauna bathers to wind down in an authentic Down Under ambience at a temperature of 65-75 °C and a humidity level of 15-30 %.

The sauna walls stand on a brick and tiled foundation and are designed as a diffusion-open wooden frame construction with an air circulation level and an installation level. Inside the walls are planked with smooth edge boards and vertically mounted logs of certified polar spruce. The roof and ceiling design is a rafter construction with thermal insulation and a full-surface bonded vapour barrier. The undersides of the ceiling are designed with smooth edge boards and horizontally mounted logs of certified polar spruce, corresponding to the walls. The horizontal part of the ceiling is coloured. The area above the stove complies with the DIN heat protection standard and is also coloured.
The benches including the closed intervening spaces are made of Abachi wood and feature B+S’s diagonal sliding system. The substructure of the benches is made of stainless steel.

A powerful sauna of premium quality

The windows have sauna-specific glazing and comply with the guidelines of the Rosenheim Window Institute. The sauna door is an all-glass door made of so-called float glass without a threshold.
The sauna is heated via 2 electric stoves with evaporators, which have a total output of 42 kW. The evaporators are equipped with a fixed water connection with dry-running protection and acoustic low-water alarm. The stoves are each filled with 45 kg of peridotite bricks. In addition, another 150 kg of peridotite stones lie on top of a steel grid, providing excellent radiant heat. The stoves are coated with a construction of shotcrete, which was also designed in colour.

An electronic control unit allows the sauna to be operated either as a Finnish sauna or as a hot-air bath. The lighting package consists of backlit backrests, circumferential light coves between the wall and ceiling, spots above the stove and cleaning luminaires, which can also be used as lower bench luminaires. Of course, the sauna also has a contemporary sound system. The Palaneri is rounded off by the usual accessories such as headrests, hourglasses, climate measuring devices, tubs, trowel and spectacle shelves.
