The thematic sweeping curve of the hillside house is picked up again on the rear wall of this master bathroom, and its free-standing tub and oval-shaped terrace fire pit. With the bathroom doors pulled back and terrazzo running from indoors to outdoors, the bathing space has a spacious, airy feel. Given the homes lofty elevation, privacy was not an issue in the third-floor master suite the motorised diaphanous white curtains are to control the sun.

When a bathroom offers spectacular views it makes sense to let the decor take a back seat to the scenery. Yet, the finishes and design have to provide a luxurious vantage point.

This master ensuite is on the top floor of a high-end, three-level home by Landry Design Group. All areas of the house enjoy views to downtown LA and Santa Monica, not least this bathroom, says associate William Mungall.

"Everything about this space is designed to be subservient to the views. All the walls and shower surfaces are in a white nano glass. This reflective, particle-free glass often called liquid glass has depth and a crystalline quality, an appropriate finish for the upmarket setting. "

As with the main area of this bathroom, the shower zone opens directly onto the expansive terrace.

The house follows a graceful curve and this is picked up again on the bathroom's rear wall. To keep the look minimalist, toilets, storage and a clothing closet are integrated into this.

"We set the clean-lined custom vanity in the middle of the space so the owners can still take in the views while using it. The vanity has a light, floating quality accentuated by a reveal under the countertop."

The bathroom follows an L-shape, with the shower area off in an arm of its own. The double shower is designed with a seating area between each zone and, as with the rest of the bathroom, can be completely opened up to the terrace.

Room with quite a view this white, light, minimalist bathroom lets downtown Hollywood views take centre stage. Toilets, storage and a clothing closet are all set into the rear wall, so that nothing comes between the occupant and the outlooks.

The ensuite also continues the use of large terrazzo stone found throughout the home. As with the nano glass, this offers a reflective surface, adding to the white, bright aesthetic.

"However, generous overhangs and a white motorised curtain bring control over the sun," says Mungall. "In a sense, the inside bathroom is only part of the ensuite. This end section of the terrace includes a sculptural fire pit a lovely way to dry off in the open air."
