For Sara Story, every early morning at her home in Texas Hill Nation starts the exact same. “Rain or shine I choose a walking,” states the fitness-obsessed AD100 designer, who forgoes her routine Manhattan health club program in favor of outside workout whenever she’s at the cattle ranch. The surface recognizes: It’s the exact same sweeping view that she fell for throughout summer seasons at her dad’s surrounding home, long before she commissioned Lake|Flato Architects to construct a location of her own ( ADVERTISEMENT, April 2014). Nowadays, nevertheless, the crescendo feels various. Influenced by modern Scandinavian saunas, she worked together with the architecture company Clayton Korte to develop a spellbinding health club, with a wood-lined structure and an outside cold-plunge swimming pool, both sculpturally dressed in board-formed concrete. After an hour-long trek around the premises, she now sweats it out for thirty minutes at 180 degrees, before tiptoeing throughout the stone pavers to take a bracing dip in the round sanctuary. For the faint of heart it’s not. However this is Sara Story “My heritage is Viking,” she keeps in mind. “The entire sauna mindset remains in my blood.”
