Another new shower trend (or one borrowed from a villa in St. John): Providing an outdoor shower right outside the bathroom. This is the same shower you saw in the previous photograph. There is also a shower on the indoor side of the glass, so the options are open in more ways than one.
This shower has it all: a connection to the indoor bathroom, the outdoor feeling, and a bit more privacy.
This architect left a note under the picture explaining that "privacy allows a fully open wall of glass in front of shower and tub." I assume this means that unless someone is hovering outside the glass in a helicopter, no one can see you. However, if you're the type who is stalked by TMZ, you might want a little more privacy than this. Sorry Lindsey Lohan, this is not the shower for you.
This trend has started to spread beyond the shower stall. This is an outdoor bathtub on an upper deck of The Hillside House.
Here the tub and shower can be completely open to the courtyard. Even when the doors are closed, there is still a very strong feeling of being open to the elements.
Where is your comfort level in all of this? Would you hop right under any of these showers or does even a tiny skylight make you feel too exposed? I'm still deciding; please let me know your thoughts in the comments.
