Solace Bath 5 PHOTOS

Our client wished for a bath retreat drawn from spa resort experiences in diverse locations such as Bali, Indonesia & Reykjavik, Iceland, that share an affinity for rich natural materials. The mood was to be serene, introverted, Zen. We responded with a simple plan for the compact space which treats the room as furniture, with fine handcrafted details, supple colors and textures, and surprise effects from indirect light.

Iroko wood strips spill from the tub deck, to the step at the floor in a continuous woven curtain. Back painted glass tile at the ceiling reflects the water below. Stacked pencil porcelain tile at the walls provides a fabric-like texture, also reminiscent of fine wood louvers. Tub & niches were water-jet cut from basaltina slab.
