The glossy black acrylic privacy divider in this contemporary bathroom is a talking point, giving the room a light-hearted, contemporary appeal. The design is by architect Shaun Lockyer.

Sometimes a straightforward approach can bring out the best in a bathroom. A simple material palette and division of use can evoke a sense of space and tranquility.

This bathroom by architect Shaun Lockyer has a modest footprint but still achieves an expansive feel. Several factors contribute to this, says Lockyer.

A picture of travertine tile, mirror and warm wood veneer, this bathroom by Shaun Lockyer Architects has a resort-like air. The companys trademark S-shaped shelving is seen reflected in the mirror. The low ceiling over the bath niche conceals services while the tub echoes the organic curves of the basins. Fluorescent lighting and a skylight in the cutaway above mean the space is bathed in light.

"Floor and walls are finished in travertine tiles the uniform look is restful and spa-like, and enhances the sense of space. Countertops are in Italian marble and we specified standing basins to further the resort-like ambiance."

The shower enclosure is at one end of the long, narrow space and the bath is set into a niche at the other, again accentuating the impression of plenty of room to move.

To continue the clean look of the travertine walls and flooring in this bathroom, the countertop is an Italian marble. The faucets were set into the mirror to add to the feeling of simplicity. A heated towel rail adds comfort and functionality. The design is by architect Shaun Lockyer.

"A wall-length mirror doubles the space visually, and the glass shower enclosure and semi-transparent, acrylic privacy screen avoid blocking extended sightlines," says Lockyer.

Lighting design makes its contribution to the spa-like feel. A set-back ceiling allows light to filter in from above, and placing the glass louvers high up addresses privacy issues the house is in close proximity to its neighbors.
