This project consisted of work on three bathrooms and a powder room.
Kids’ bathroom remodel:
The kids' bathroom was reorganized to create three zones: a wet room within the room, a sink area and a toilet area. The door into the bathroom was relocated to align with the existing window to bring more light to the hallway and to create a lighter space in general. The toilet was placed to be wrapped around the wet room and out of sight from the hallway.
The new linear calacatta oro countertop hovers over two, open, knee spaces with teak-slatted shelves near the floor for towel storage. A shallow cabinet was built above the sink that houses mirrors, a medicine cabinet in the teak face and major lighting in the area located in both the top and bottom of the cabinet.
The existing guest bathroom was small and cramped with a bathtub that was hard for the elderly parents to use. To create a more generous-feeling room, fixtures were relocated, space was a taken from the underutilized closet in the adjacent hallway and the door relocated to create an arrival point between the walk-in shower and the toilet-sink area. The generous shower includes a tiled walk-in bench. A wall- to-wall mirror above the toilet and sink also assists in creating the perception of a larger space. The open space below the sink and cabinet allows for a perception of a larger space. Materials were chosen to create a calming Zen-like space.
The client requested a change in look and feel from the utilitarian sink, mirror and white walls. Michael Tauber Architecture designed the room to give a rustic yet modern look, utilizing a big color and warm walnut tones offset by the bronze vessel sink.
