Shower over freestanding bathtub - without a curtain. Is this doable?

I'm designing the renovation of my first home. I have most things settled in my mind except the bathroom.
It's small. 7' x 7' and I want a bath, shower, toilet and sink in there. Plus I want it to look awesome.

Couple more things. I want a free standing bath and I hate shower curtains with a passion.

My plan is to have a freestanding bath against one wall with a rain shower above it in the centre. Then use no curtain, but instead have a tiled wet room floor.
Picture a wet room but the shower is still over the tub.
Against the other wall will be my toilet and sink.

Don't think about the current layout or plumbing. It's all getting ripped out. Re-plumbing and wiring the entire house.

Please tell me if I'm just being crazy!

- Is it also mad to consider having the tub/shower against the window?
- has this idea been done before?
- will everything in the room just get soaked?

This may be a crazy idea and you may not like it but I think it is worth mentioning: Would you consider having a pole high enough that goes over the window and the door. You could have a shower curtain but would be few inches away from the tub and you could tuck behind the tub and the window when not in use?

Really really hate shower curtains.

The look is one thing - and I understand your idea of having it tucked out the way when not in use - but the other thing a hate is the feel of them in the shower.

Installing a curtain would only be a back up plan if this one fails!

When I wrote my comment, I was thinking of having the shower curtain hanging outside the tub like around 8 in away from the tub but then it could be a nightmare to wipe behind the tub.
