Open Transitional Bathroom by Shawn McCune

NKBA's 2014 Design Competition Winner: Universal Design

This master bathroom was meticulously designed for a paraplegic client and his girlfriend to make them feel at home, yet accommodate the medical issues. Understanding the client's physical capabilities, a 42" wide pocket door was designed, allowing it to pocket in 36", leaving a 36" clearance and 6" to attach a large handle to both sides so the client could push it open and shut. To accommodate a ceiling track lift system, a ceiling that included the radius features of the rest of the house was designed, concealing the track. The system would lift the client from his bed through the bathroom door, over the tub, the hat box toilet, the new artistic bidet, into the shower, over the wall and into the changing table, and then into his wheelchair. In order to make this system functional, a Control4 system was integrated for the client to run all the lights and smart home systems. Sections of the track lift were reengineered by the manufacturer to comply. An elegant looking carefully sculpted water system assists the client in his cleansing routines. The shower features a two-drench system with a zero clearance system. A custom stainless steel shower caddie was built to accommodate a curved wall, and a remote-operated shower system was integrated. The client will then finish-up his routine in his non-standard ADA vanity.
