There is no compromise in this master suite in a new house designed by architect Anthony Rechichi. The generously sized space provides enough room for a separate shower and toilet room, so the main part of the bathroom forms a quiet sanctuary with a freestanding tub and wading basins. A large sliding door opens up the bedroom to the main part of the bathroom.

Space is often considered the ultimate luxury, and that is precisely what this suite offers. Architect Anthony Rechichi planned the layout so there would be enough room for a separate shower and toilet room.

"This leaves the main bathroom area as a true sanctuary that can be left open to the bedroom, although there is a sliding door to close it off if required," he says.

In this contemporary master bathroom a Kaldewei Conoduo tub appears to slide into a stone surround on an elevated platform. The angular forms are softened visually by the texture on both the tub and the tiles. The design is by architect Anthony Rechichi.

Rechichi placed two long his-and-hers vanities with light grey Villeroy & Boch wading basins at right angles.

"Recessed mirrored toekicks reflect the room and give the impression the vanity units are cantilevered, while concealing the plumbing services," the architect says.

Coffered ceilings in this bedroom and bathroom feature uplighting for added visual interest. They also help to ensure the rooms proportions are the right scale, and complement the rest of the architecture. The house was designed by Anthony Rechichi.

The composition reinforces a design theme seen throughout the home, whereby solids are contrasted with voids, and there are light versus heavy elements, and varying layers of the colour white.

A large rectangular Kaldewei Conoduo tub forms the centrepiece this is raised on a tile slab and appears to slot into the stone surround like a 3-D puzzle.
