NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Before & After Bath
As a remedy for the existing master bathroom that lacked sophistication and attention to detail, the clients wanted a spacious, well-lit bathroom that connected to the master bedroom and resonated with its more refined architectural style. Introducing a layered lighting scheme and light colored, reflective surfaces brings a bright, refreshing feel to the space. A glass shower door replaces the original solid tub/shower wall, enabling an open feel to the room. Bathing, washing and toilet areas are treated as individual, formal, symmetrical compositions, connecting to one another for a unified architectural expression. The addition of a second 30" door provides for a more generous, open "suite" connection to the bedroom. A palette of classic forms and materials unify the space and connect it to the similarly-refined forms of the bedroom. Special features like silver-tray ceiling with crystal chandelier, Calcutta marble floor laid on a herringbone with inlaid tile rug, niche for art or flowers behind a free-standing tub, frosted glass French entry doors and unique toilet storage/ display cabinet, add to the distinctive style of this stunning bathroom. Fresh and revitalizing, like a step into the savannas!
