This design allowed the cabinetry to extend into the shower area, increasing the functional space in the bathroom.
Here's a detail of a trench drain that can be used in a zero-threshold shower.
Building a zero-threshold shower on a ground floor or in basement with a "slab-on-grade" is easy. In new construction, lower the slab a few inches at the shower location. If you're remodeling, you'll need to remove a section of the existing slab, a fairly easy and inexpensive bit of demolition.
If the shower sits on top of a wood-framed floor, either notch the floor joists or reduce the joist sizing. Before doing this, be sure to consult with your architect to be sure there is adequate support and that the installation meets building codes.
