Relaxing Contemporary Bathroom by Elina Katsioula-Beall

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Green Design

Aficionados of natural elements as well as recycling enthusiasts, the clients desired their bathroom suite to bring forth a soothing feeling, with a material mix evoking the outdoors and a hidden system to recycle greywater. The layout accommodates an open plan featuring the couple's long vanity, with the water closet to the right and shower to the left. Across from the shower, the large deck features a bath tub, big enough to accommodate two. Below the tub deck, a water pump feeds the greywater to the garden. Gray pebbles and bamboo, resting on a bed of quiet "anticato" travertine, are the key materials evoking a nature's retreat. The recycled glass mosaic appears on the shower walls and shampoo alcove. The streamlined, gray-washed bamboo cabinetry includes a hamper, individual recycling below the sinks and mini product-pantries for all toiletries. A natural tapestry of gray pebble rocks behind the tub introduces a spa-like backdrop. Slim sconces wash the stunning texture with a hidden halogen source, which conceals direct light while bathing. This is the ideal escape for environmentalists to relax, wash away urban dust, and restore themselves and their environment!
