For this bathroom, designers Davinia Sutton and Sam Lawrence actually shaved space off the available volume of an existing under-roof, sloping-wall robe area by adding in vertical side walls. These reshaped the room, carving out purpose-fit alcoves for the freestanding bath, showers, and vanity areas. 


The dual walk-in shower space takes centre stage and is the central focus of the bathroom. A rain showerhead is tucked up high into an existing roof space.

The space opposite showcases the bath. This has a timber element rebated into the rustic tile wall, resembling a bespoke piece of furniture.

The side walls of this bathroom are finished in a similar tile to the floor Composto Sabbia is a field tile that reproduces the patina typical of worn natural stone. The bath niche insert is in a Prime Art American Oak veneer. 

"The palette is simple while texture brings warmth and personality. The play on form and finish creates a sense of luxury," says Lawrence.
