Strachan Group Architects (SGA) wins 2023 TIDA New Zealand Architect Bathroom of the Year

Congratulations to Pat de Pont of SGA – winner of the 2023 Trends International Design Awards New Zealand Architect Bathroom of the Year

Watch a slide show of this winning bathroom, with commentary from architect Pat de Pont

This large bedroom suite occupies an upper level of the home, which can be accessed by both a broad staircase and a domestic lift. 

Designed to be relatively self-contained, the suite includes a small kitchenette and room for sitting and working if necessary. 

Morning sun is filtered into the bedroom and bathroom spaces through external adjustable louvres, which provide control of both privacy and outlook.

The generously proportioned dressing room and ensuite bathroom are designed with accessibility in mind, including fittings specifically designed for people with restricted mobility.

Contrasting materials assist people with impaired vision to navigate, and here the timber ceiling and dark tiled floor planes are contrasted with white wall tiling and spotted gum timber cabinetry.

The TIDA Judges were impressed with how this suite integrates principles of sustainability and accessibility, allowing the owners to mitigate health challenges and maintain their independence and high quality of life for as long as possible.
