Hi, The oiler is in the extreme foreground to the left of the sink, out of the photo. The only things in the wet room are the bathing things.

floor is level at all of the walls, so the slope is greater at the front

Hi, Thanks for the very kind words. I think that it would be pretty easy to extend the glass wall to the ceiling (and I guess into the skylight wells too). The limestone wall surfaces would have to be everywhere in the steam zone...there might be a condensation issue at the skylights even though they are dual glazed.

Hi - The toilet is not in a compartment of its own; it is just off the left hand side of the photo next to the vanity. We often do compartmentalize the toilet, depending on available space and client desires; in this case given the dimensions we had to work with and the desire to create an open and airy space(despite there being no windows), we opted not to compartmentalize the toilet. Your dimensions are roughly the same as those in the photo.

This project had a concrete slab floor, the entire 'wet room' was waterproofed as if the entire thing was a shower, with waterproofing running to the top of the tile.

We are doing the same thing for a client... and we are having issues with how to drain the tub. The shower pan has the hole for the drain for the shower part... but there isn't an additional hole for the drain for the tub. Our guys are saying if we penetrate the shower pan to make a new hole, that it is likely to cause problems down the road. Please explain how you drained the tub. Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

Glad you like it. Getting the flat tub bottom to look right with the sloping floor was a challenge. The reason the floor slopes to the front is so that the gap under the tub (there is a small gap) is uniform and reads evenly from side to side. if the floor sloped as you intend the gap would read unevenly, or, if the tub was set down on the slope it may read as sloped. In reality, given the size of the 'wet room' there is very little water that gets to the back wall, so it has never really been an issue.
