The Orchard modern-bathroom

The Orchard

This single family home in the Greenlake neighborhood of Seattle is a modern home with a strong emphasis on sustainability. The house includes a rainwater harvesting system that supplies the toilets and laundry with water. On-site storm water treatment, native and low maintenance plants reduce the site impact of this project. This project emphasizes the relationship between site and building by creating indoor and outdoor spaces that respond to the surrounding environment and change throughout the seasons.

The house was not designed to be handicapped accessible so that wasn't a design issue in the shower. When we have done ADA bathrooms in the past we have recessed the shower pan into the floor to allow for a roll-in configuration with trench style covered drains at the edges.

Hi Nicole. It was a natural slate tile. I believe it was from Pental.

We haven't seen any leakage in any of the windows. As a matter of fact, I haven't come across a leaking window in over ten years. Modern windows are built pretty well. Install problems.... Different story.
The windows here are Eagle windows.

Hi. The rain garden is really for managing storm water runoff. Seattle sewers are overloaded so this design allows us to deal with all our storm water on site. The tanks in front store rainwater for use in the building. Once they are full, overflow is directed to the rain garden for dissipation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An old claw-foot tub and sink were refinished and reused, adding old-school texture to the modern bathroom. Some of the rainwater falling on the house is plumbed into the home to supply water to the toilets and the laundry room. The remainder is captured in a rain garden and allowed to slowly infiltrate back into the ground. The city storm sewer system doesn't need to connect to the home, which allows the homeowners to cut their water bill in half.
