This 1890s tenement apartment, also known as a cold water flat, was ripe for a renovation. With a shower and toilet/sink located at opposite ends and a cooktop in the living room, the railroad layout was a disjointed jumble in need of coherent modernization. Our first step was to move the poche -- the cluster of plumbing and storage space -- into one centralized location. We created a European-styled bathroom with a Carrara marble stall shower and a space-saving wall-hung toilet. Opposite the bathroom are built-in closets constructed to detailed specification to accommodate the couple's wardrobe. The resulting corridor space acts as a fluid connector between the apartments's public living area and the private bedroom. Open walnut shelving in the kitchen lends a "floating" appearance to stacked dishes and glassware, while concealed, small-sized appliances maintain the sleek look. The stove and refrigerator are installed on the stairwell wall, so that the exposed brick of the opposite wall appears to flow through the unit. The living room fireplace was restored to working condition while the bedroom fireplace, a likely fire hazard located so close to the foot of the bed, was ingeniously fitted with a custom shoe cabinet.

Is the bottom recessed shelf/panel an access point to the wall mounted tank? I understand one of the con's of this type of toilet is getting access to fix problems.

3. Think "wall mounted" to make great use of space. The tank of a wall-mounted toilet is inside the wall behind it, so it uses the depth of the wall to reduce how far it protrudes into the room. For the carrier system inside the wall, you can get one that either fits into a wall with 2-by-6-inch studs or one that recesses into a wall with standard 2-by-4 studs.I'm not a contractor, but in general, exterior walls have 6-inch studs and interior walls have 4-inch studs. Once in awhile you may have things already inside the wall that would be problematic to reroute, so installing your wall-hung toilet recessed into the wall may not be right for you. But consider building out a section of wall specifically to house the carrier system. Although it won't reduce how far the toilet protrudes into the room, you can create storage above it for a seamless look that is highly functional. Capturing all of that storage space above the carrier system definitely costs a lot more than installing a cabinet on stilts that straddles your toilet tank, but it looks so much nicer.

wall hung toilet. even if it doesn't free up space (window) it may be a good visual creator of space. but probably not practical

Really interesting toilet concept, with carrier recessed into the wall. We only have 4" stud space, not sure how to make that work. Other suggested option is to build out the wall, but i don't think that would lead to good lines with the shower.
