See e.g. the Finnish design sauna project Hot Cube in Suomenlinna. Designer Harri Markkula has worked several years to create this minimalistic windowless sauna that is made almost entirely of wood. Through the lattices in the ground light an air comes into the sauna. And since the Hot Cube is floating on the sea you can see the water beneath you while taking a refreshing sauna.
