Compromise is a common feature in many renovation projects, but often alterations in apartments are even more restricted than individual homes.

Kitchen and bathroom designer Andrew Wright of Capell of Sydney was asked to renovate the bathroom in this apartment and give it a clean, integrated look.

"As with most apartments, we could not move many of the fittings, waste pipes or drains, which limited what we could do," he says.

To make the space as streamlined as possible, Wright designed it to include a wall-faced toilet pan and a cistern built into a stack wall that hides the services. A false wall lines up with the stack wall and supports the square wall-hung basin. A recessed ledge in this wall forms a narrow benchtop behind the basin.

Storage is provided in a mirrored shaving cabinet that sits flush with the wall above the basin.

"By using integrated and wall-hung fittings and recessing the benchtop, we have given the bathroom an uncluttered, spacious appearance that wouldn't have been possible with a standard vanity and toilet," Wright says.

A simple decor of large, square, white wall tiles and off-white floor tiles enhances the sense of spaciousness in the bathroom.
