Using the existing 125 sq. ft. of space, the homeowner wanted to remodel and add cutting-edge amenities to the 1980s bath to create a brighter and spa-like bathroom. To offer a larger shower, a 50-in.-wide freestanding tiled wall was designed and built to protrude 8-in. into the existing 50- by 50-in. skylight shaft; a 27- by 20-in. pass-through allows more natural light and ventilation into the shower. An upholstered seat is nestled into a wall with 15-in. returns; the wall is finished with a rare Brazilian Azul Macauba stone slab. The shower features an LED-lit, fog-free mirror with heat behind the edges; a shaving sink; nickel hardware; a floating headed marble seat; six body sprays; and two showerheads. A wall-mounted square toilet complements the geometrical angles throughout the space. Tall cabinets flank the apron-front sink in lieu of a linen closet. Electrical outlets in the drawers let appliances be plugged in and out of sight.
