Bathrooms are often tucked into small spaces, saving room for other more important places within a house, condo or apartment. What if you rethought the priority of your layouts or had enough space to arrange a bathroom furnishings, fixtures and decor look and feel more like an open living room area than a cramped closet?
While such a strategy presupposes a luxury client who can afford to buy into it, the exercise by designer Michael Shaerlig is nonetheless interesting on an abstract interior design level. This bathroom is essentially zoned into four distinct spaces so that bathing, washing and other activities can happen in distinct locations in the overall layout. The aesthetic result is a kind of modern minimalism with continuity provided by simple forms but different implied zones of activity created by integrated fixtures.
