This bathroom is about everything beyond function; the bathing experience as an integral part of the private world of the bedroom. Comfort, sensuality, theater and beauty are the desires enabled in the new space. The mutable characteristics of light playing in iridescent glass tiles and cast glass blocks, as well as in the water and wet surfaces, inspire personal contemplation. The glass tile walls, cabinet faces and mirrors are arranged in space to create a sense of layering and lightness. Custom fabricated mirrors are cantilevered from the ceiling to allow the glass block wall to remain complete. The heated shower floor is a gently sloping plinth whose edge was determined by a thrown rope during layout. The powder room wall-mounted fixtures float above a slab of salvaged Bay Laurel wood set into the tile floor.
