The centrepiece for the design of the modest-sized room is a beautiful, organic basin, chosen for its arresting shape, and enhanced by a large theatrical oversized mirror that not only reflects light, but also makes the room feel larger.
“One of the biggest challenges faced on this design was fitting all three main elements – the feature basin, shower and toilet – into what was an odd-shaped room with two entrances. Accordingly, the shower is positioned next to the door out to the pool, and the toilet next to the internal door to the main living areas.”
As this room was to be used as a through space, storage was not high on the list of requirements, but drama was. The designer and the owners felt that freestanding cabinetry would have detracted from the feature basin, and so was not required or appropriate here.
And for the same reason, the bathroom walls have been given a clean look, with touches like the heated towel rail recessed back into the wall of the toilet cubicle.
Contributing greatly to the room’s stand-out presence is its colour. The scheme is mainly in black, with the large floor and wall tiles, taps, toilet and accessories all in this moody tone.
Completing the design picture, a curvaceous porcelain freestanding sculpture provides space for an extra towel or for holding magazines, and is a perfect accompaniment to the fluid lines of the white statement vanity sink.
