"Having the glass shower screen stop short of the floor required thoughtful design, in terms of the engineering, as well as a sloped floor that extends out beyond the stall's footprint."

Wood and moisture are poor company so Barnes introduced a window sill and window surround in a dark stone tile in this upmarket bathroom.
