Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY
The client had recently purchased
a single family home and wanted to make a number of structural
as well as spatial improvements (opening up the parlor wall to
the adjacent hall) and needed to create a second bathroom where
one had previously existed.
For the new bathroom, the existing
space was tiny but had an existing skylight. In order to maximize
the spaciousness of the room, we wanted to create as few separations
as possible - typically between shower or bath and the rest of
the room. The boundary between room and shower is blurred by creating
a built - in shower with a frameless glass door and panels. The
same tile inside and out. The tiled shower seat slides out of
the shower and the stone vanity counter slides into the shower,
further breaking down any sense of enclosure.
