White, airy and light-filled, this serene bathroom extends the relaxed, southern European design-feel of the seaside home it forms part of

Designed by Craig Steere,  CSA (Craig Steere Architects)

From the architects:

The ocean-side villa that this bathroom forms part of is characterised by a modern Mediterranean lifestyle.

The home expresses this ambiance through a series of courtyards that support large family gatherings or individual moments of respite and serenity.

The main ensuite takes cues from the home’s architectural language; all at once being a generous open space, yet defined by a series of smaller recesses that allow for individual moments of leisure and comfort.

A gallery leading to the main suite, dressing and ensuite is flanked by deep shelves and thick window reveals that provide moments to display objects or casual opportunity for sitting with scenic views out to the sky and courtyards.

The end of the gallery is punctuated by a sculptural bath with a large highlight window where the tips of the Cottesloe Norfolk pines playfully peek through.

As the polished off-white concrete floors from the gallery blend into the ensuite, the occupant is lead down into a room awash with natural light from a series of skylights above the vanity, bath and double shower recesses.

With the master bedroom leading off to the left, and the walk-in robe to the right, the ensuite is the hub that connects the rooms to each other.

Functionally, the ensuite enjoys a his and hers double vanity and large double shower compartment clad in easy to clean sheet engineered stone.

The vanity unit takes centre stage amongst the monochromatic colour palette with its rich, spotted gum cabinetry, layered light-coloured engineered stone vanity base, and contrasting darker granite benchtop.

These materials are carried throughout the house to provide a cohesive architectural expression.

From the bath, a discreet and private framed slot window directs one’s eyes out towards the sweeping oceans beyond.

At night, the triple skylights provide the perfect opportunity to stargaze while soaking in the bath.
