A long and narrow space presented the designer with a number of design challenges, but the very clever introduction of an island vanity layout proved a winner! The unique placement of this vanity accommodated the ‘his and her’ zones desired by the clients, and allowed wall space for heated towel rails. Finishes to the bathroom are warm and timeless, and detailing is perfectly suited to the overall style of the space.
While the moody ambience of this impressive ensuite caught the attention of the judges, it was the outstanding documentation that supported this design entry that really sold them. While the design itself was an excellent response to both the client brief and the physical parameters of the site, the detailed documentation of this tasteful transformation was evidence of the designer’s skill and ability.
The designer’s task was no mean feat; the client wanted to transform an under-used fourth storey of a five-storey home into an exclusive retreat, with a large bedroom, ensuite, walk-in robe, sitting room and dual work stations. The designer overcame a number of site complications to create a stunning design solution. With its silver accessories, Antarctic marble features, richly clad walls and finely detailed cabinetry, the ensuite is the hero of the overall space, oozing opulence and elegance.
This upstairs bathroom in a three-bedroom townhouse presented a few design challenges for this designer. The layout that would meet the needs of the client now and in the future required the repositioning of the toilet (and its associated plumbing), the removal of a large bath and the relocation of an air conditioning duct. The effort proved worthwhile, however, with the designer presenting a practical and beautiful bathroom design solution that will suit the clients for years to come.
A claw foot bath was a ‘must-have’ for the client, and a challenge for the designer! The long, narrow bathroom space needed an inventive solution to accommodate this bath, along with a stand alone shower and an existing French armoire. The designer rose to the challenge, removing an existing window to create sufficient space for the client’s wish list. With the selection of exquisite tapware and lighting and a gorgeous floor tile, the designer has created a romantic ambience.
