One of the most recent projects undertaken by Milk is a bespoke sauna and steam room installation at Broughton Hall Estate, creating the design and fabrication of a truly unique project. From an initial customer brief we delivered the design concept through to detailed production and fabrication drawings, material sourcing and fabrication. All in-house processes that led to the creation of a truly unique thermal experience.
The sauna created for this installation was manufactured within Milks workshop and was created as a result of the complicated assembly of laminated timber elements. These elements were then CNC’d to form the 148 individual components required to form this unique sauna cabin. The prime grade Hemlock Timber used for this installation was sealed and protected against the rigors of operation by applying 3 coats of Supi Sauna Wax, a product by Tikkurila. A Milk designed circular feature ceiling light was installed mirroring the corporate image of the wellness facility, casting a wonderful light across the curved interior of this sauna. The fluid interior space is complimented by the installation of a Harvia Globe sauna heater.
The steam room installation was created in partnership with Wedi Systems UK Ltd, made up of 28 individually formed segments, these were bonded together, sealed and vapour-proofed, ensuring a durable substrate for the Christian Botteganove mosaic tiling. As ever for Milk these mosaics were installed by the uniquely talented Sharon Taylor of Viva Tiling. The hand crafted ceiling light to match that of the sauna but to cater for the specific thermal requirements of the steam cabin, again reflecting the Avalons corporate symbol, compliments the lustrous lines of the steam room interior and that of the sauna heater.
“Milk are exceptionally proud of this installation, it’s a very real reflection of our design and manufacturing ambitions and the inhouse artisan skills we can bring to bear”. – Robert Merrick, Managing Director of Milk Leisure.
