Designed by Urbane Projects
From the designer:
Urbane Projects The owners’ brief requirements for their ensuite was to include a shower, toilet with a door, double vanity and freestanding bath.
It was very simple as far as requirements but this allowed us to use the view as the major drawcard to elevate this space beyond the ordinary.
Through the process of the design, we wanted to provide our homeowner with the opportunity to enjoy the ocean views from both the bedroom and ensuite.
We designed the master suite in such a way as to allow an uninterrupted flow between the bedroom, ensuite and wardrobe spaces but at the same time also allows the ensuite to be a room within the larger zone.
The challenge was to be able to enjoy the vista from the ensuite when desired but to also allow the owners to close off the space so an early riser or night owl could make use of this room without disturbing their partner.
Our solution was to provide an opening to the ensuite fitted with solid sliding doors which allowed them to open and close off the room to the bedroom to look through to the view beyond the bedroom window when desired.
We decided to locate the freestanding bath (the lowest fixture) at this position but on a raised plinth to allow the bath user a front seat to the view and hold a conversation with anyone in the bedroom.
Placing the tub on a raised plinth allows the bather a higher vantage so the bed in front did not obstruct their view.
