Relaxing Contemporary Bathroom by Holly Rickert

2011 NKBA Design Competition - Best Bathroom

This restful place provides a peaceful reprieve, and according to the client's wishes, follows the Japanese tradition of family style bathing accomplished outdoors. The window was a natural choice for the graceful tub, which has an in-line heater and sits in loose river rocks within a drained fiberglass pan. A wood-textured porcelain tile floor follows the gentle curve of the tub to mirror a seemingly natural path of the rocks. A large walk-in shower and separate water closet were incorporated into a space that had been an extra guest closet in an adjacent room. The water tiles provide a rain shower rinse and the slide bar offers traditional showering. A curved wall defines the shower space and contains a drained planter and shampoo storage. With lush treetops seen outside a generous window and the thoughtful selection of materials and products, this family bathroom appears to be tucked away in the recesses of a quiet garden.
