Unusual Constraints/Challenges & Creative Solutions

In order to create the space for this bath we removed an old bath adjacent to the space, closed up three windows on one side, for the shower and storage wall, and replaced three other windows. We leveled and strengthened the floors under the bath (the space was originally built as a porch) and reframed the roof to allow for a skylight, plumbing and ducting. A designer in selecting fine plumbing guided the homeowner and stone finishes from Water Works.

These were carefully installed to allow for the under-mount tub and custom glass shower enclosure. The shower floor came out especially well with the square chrome drain and intricate stone mosaic. The storage cabinet was designed with glass doors, under-cabinet lighting and high quality hardware. Ample heating was added through a “Warm Tile” floor system that was extended up under the tub slab. A Runtal hydronic towel-warming radiator was installed next to the tub.
