Private residence (London)

Client: Private

Year: 2014

Our primary objective with this project was to enlarge the volume of the existing bathroom using the available space in a compact end of terrace two-bedroom house. As the existing bathroom layout was already proving to be the most space-efficient arrangement it was decided to push out the partition wall alongside the bathtub creating a curved profile. A ‘D’ shaped bath was then used in the inverse position (the curved side would usually face out). By making the new partition curved minimalised the impact to the adjoining bedroom where the space given up to the bathroom had been slightly awkward due to a service riser that is now within the bathroom zone. The feature 'muretto' mosaic tiled wall forms a continuous horizontal pattern across multiple surfaces to amplify the perceived volume of space. White Corian is used as countertop continuing around in a ribbon to become the fascia for overhead storage compartments. Generous storage has been integrated into the built-in elements as well as heated mirror, shaver socket, LED lighting, towel radiator and controlled extraction. Care has been taken to ensure that all services are fully accessible for maintenance.
