Materials matter – a curvaceous jade tile showerstall is matched with spotted gum decking and a Calacatta vanity top to create a natural feel for this ground floor bathroom 

Designed by architect Clinton Cole, CplusC Architectural Workshop

From the architects: 

  • The ground floor bathroom serves as a secondary washroom for entertaining guests or occupants lounging in the second living space.
  • The bathroom is concealed behind a cove of deep storage joinery serving the garage and charging station. The leftover space had to feel spacious and offer a relieving palette of colour, material and texture to help tame the cavernous ground floor spaces.
  • Cemintel Barestone Fibre Cement wall panelling and polished concrete flooring were chosen to complement the spotted gum veneer joinery, Calacatta marble benchtop and hand thrown glazed clay basin. Matte black tapware and showerhead create the perfect counterpoint to the bathroom’s rich palette.

  • Vertically aligned jade mosaic tiles surround a brass niche and wrap the bathroom’s rounded corner. A custom curved glass wall subtly encloses the shower space and reflects the rounded geometry of the room.
  • Spotted gum decking was chosen to resolve shower drainage creatively while also providing a familiar feel underfoot.
  • The floor-to-ceiling bay of translucent louvres brings in fresh air from the outside while a frosted picture window at head height to the shower washes the space with diffused daylight.
  • A round LED backlit wall mirror, translucent glass louvres and an offset pendant light offer a variety of lighting atmospheres.
