Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

A toilet paper stand (movable) and an under sink mount are both options.

The room dimensions to the interior walls are 8.5 x 5.5ft. The ceiling height is not readily available, but as you can see a portion is sloped, due to the stairs above.

The floor slopes toward the drain under the showerhead, and the door has been placed at a distance that does not get wet.

The counter is 19.5" deep, which is highly functional when one mounts the faucet on the wall. I use this strategy often in small bath spaces.

The vessel is from Waterworks and mounted into the custom counter of Carrara marble.

To support the counter there are metal brackets bolted to the wall studs, that only protrude underneath the slab. They are not flush, but are not easily visible.

The marble counter is braced into the wall studs at rear and side wall. We did not install metal brackets, as I wanted the look to be 100% open and floating. I designed the bath to wall mount everything for maximum sense of space and ADA accessibility if ever needed.

tile - Hi, First of all I love this bathroom! We are doing a master bath addition. I am having trouble finding the floor tile. Should I contact Best TIle? I live in Southern CA. Is the brand Edimax? What is geologica...color? I can't find it anywhere. Also, is the stonewood natural stone planking the color, or is there a specific color you used here? Thanks, Megan

The light switch and GFI electrical outlet are near the sink, out of camera view. The lights themselves are ceiling mounted. The room width was based upon ADA guidelines, with a radius of movement taking into account the toilet and counter top placement.

You are correct. Floor tile size is similar to typical subway tile.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

What would usually be a first floor powder room has instead become a full, ADA wheelchair-accessible bathroom complete with a shower. "The bathroom is detailed like a big shower; a European-style wet room," Horowitz explains. "The walls are completely covered in tile, and they slope toward a floor drain. Because the room is so beautifully finished, you don't feel like you are walking into a big shower stall," says Horowitz. The wall-hung toilet saves space and makes cleaning a breeze. A few eco-friendly moves include a dual-flush toilet and using a piece of scrap marble for the counter.Another bonus: It's a great place to wash the dog!
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Design an Easy-Clean Bathroom
You can go even more extreme and create a fully watertight wet room. The handheld showerhead lets you hose it down and go. In fact, handheld showerheads are a real help in cleaning your shower even if you have a more conventional-style bathroom. Get one with a nice long hose.
Samantha Schoech added this to Make a Tiny Bathroom Work Wonders
With the right materials (such as tile and stone), you can make even a strange, cramped space into a beautiful and functional bathroom. Mopping this floor must be a cinch.
