The owners and the aesthetic

The homeowners had fairly conventional ideas and taste but were happy to be pushed a little into something more exciting. In terms of design aesthetics, they wanted the bathroom to have a luxury feel with rich finishes and they also wanted it to be a place to relax.

Physical requirements

In terms of inclusions, the owners wanted a view from the bath and from the shower; a strong connection to the outdoors; a double vanity; good size shower with place for shampoos etc; and floor-to-ceiling tiling.


Long – and tall – the bathroom is
Long – and tall – the bathroom is bathed in light thanks to optimism glazing, clerestory window included.

Constraints, solutions and design elements

·       There was limited area to build on the site with an odd shaped building platform so the footprint for the bathroom was constrained

·       Given the fantastic view – there were no other building sites beyond theirs to the beach – one end of the bathroom could not be used for the shower or vanity and the other end had the door into the bathroom so the shower location was a problem.

·       However, putting the bath in the shower enclosure solved this with the owners being able to shower or bath and enjoy the view

·       The homeowners had seen the Rubi Vanity from Robertson and loved the colour along with the bowls and this formed the basis for the colour palette which gives the en-suite its rich luxurious feel

·       Double framing the outside wall allowed for the long slot niche that runs across the shower/bath enclosure providing a place for both shower and bath to put shampoos etc.

·       The double frame also allowed for recessed mirror cabinets for extra storage.

·       We also worked with the electrician to put LED strip lighting in the recessed slot niche and this soft lighting contributed to the bathroom’s relaxed feel.

·       Lastly, the strong masculine fittings went well with the rich tones in the tiles and vanity.
