The brief was to create a Japanese inspired bathroom with the feel of a beach hut.
The room had to be a functional and tranquil with a bath, a shower and Jack and Jill basins. The room is west facing and “L” shaped and is the main bathroom for the house.
The Japanese influence was inspired by the soaking tub which is a deep square bath that also functions as a shower tray.
We sourced local ash and created a shelf for the basins and cladding for the bath. There is another narrower shelf underneath for towel storage. We framed the wall length mirror with ash and colour popped inner edge to the frame.
The wow moment comes when you step into the room and see the window.
We worked with Badger and Hake to create the stained glass panels for the window and the panel in the oak door.
The inspiration for the window came from photographs of draincovers curated by Lucy Robertson Designs from her @drainspotting Twitter account. Badger and Hake combined a variety of techniques to create the panels, coloured glass is fused to make the border which echoes the square motif of the bath and basins, textured glass is mixed and matched and placed alongside slumped and painted squares.
You step from the heated floor into the bath from a bench step we also made from ash. The tiled walls have the sun and sea washed look of a beach hut which complements the ash.
On the side wall there is a three way control for the shower, bath filler and microphone spray head.
We made an asymetric cupboard from one of the tiles houses a shaver point and convenient place to keep an electric toothbrush.
