The clients wanted to create the primary bathroom of their dreams. The goal for this ensuite was to create a relaxing retreat offering restorative benefits and a place for the homeowners to reconnect.
One of the design team’s challenges was space versus needs. The clients wanted to add a two-person infrared sauna and increase the size of their bathtub without giving up a two-person shower, linen closet and separate vanities. The bathroom also lacked storage and was cluttered.
The greatest challenge was discovering a TGI floor joist. This was problematic for the zero-entry shower. The homeowners were committed to the plan as designed and chose to raise the flooring in the bathroom and adjoining closet. The height discrepancy between the bath and bedroom was resolved by using ADA accessibility methods to create a gentle, unnoticeable decline from the bathroom floor under the carpeted bedroom.
The design solution for the plumbing fixtures included a custom sauna and combining the shower and hydrotherapy tub in a glass enclosure. To maintain privacy in this area and still allow in natural light, one window was replaced with a shorter window installed closer to the ceiling.
