Echo Beach modern bathroom
 

Echo Beach

With a clear connection between the home and the Pacific Ocean beyond, this modern dwelling provides a west coast retreat for a young family. Forethought was given to future green advancements such as being completely solar ready and having plans in place to install a living green roof. Generous use of fully retractable window walls allow sea breezes to naturally cool living spaces which extend into the outdoors. Indoor air is filtered through an exchange system, providing a healthier air quality. Concrete surfaces on floors and walls add strength and ease of maintenance. Personality is expressed with the punches of colour seen in the Italian made and designed kitchen and furnishings within the home. Thoughtful consideration was given to areas committed to the clients’ hobbies and lifestyle.

Yes. We are required to use a building code approved membrane in all shower areas.
We recommend using Schluter's shower membrane.
Be sure to check what is required in your municipality's building code.

Thanks for your interest!

The tile on the back wall in this master bath is a porcelain tile in a slate color and look.
I encourage you to find a local tile supplier and look through their samples, as many are looking much more organic - for example like marble, slate or concrete, especially when in oversized pieces.

Thanks for your interest!

The floors have radiant floor heating installed underneath, so there has been no issues with sweating or condensation.

In the photo above, the floor is concrete with a decorative cement based coating called ARDEX SD-M.
It can be customized to achieve the look you are trying to achieve, whether in a residential or commercial space.

This floor has a specific shade made up for the client, which allows them to specify if they want it lighter or darker, more blue or more gray, and so on.

Samples are specifically developed for approval on each project, allowing it to be suited to the design, aesthetic and environment of the home.

Hello, This is a beautiful bathroom! What are the dark wall tiles? And, does the sealed cement get slippery when wet?

The floor has a waxed finish on it to minimizes the slip.
The wall tiles are porcelain.
Contact a local supplier to see their current collection to find something similar.

Thank you!

Beautiful floor. Is this the 2 step process where they put a black coat on first to fill in all the cracks and seams and then lay a color on top? If so, what is the top color?

Unfortunately, concrete does often crack. We feel it gives an organic look.
You have to be comfortable with that before proceeding.
If you want a perfect surface - this may not be the right choice for you - as homes do settle so there are always issues, whether you have tile, hardwood or concrete.
One must decide what you can live with.

This floor has a specific shade made up for the client, which allows them to specify if they want it lighter or darker, more blue or more gray, and so on.
Samples are specifically developed for approval on each project, allowing it to be suited to the design, aesthetic and environment of the home.

What you see is concrete with a decorative cement based coating called ARDEX SD-M.

On the opposite end, a highly energy-efficient house with an excellent thermal envelope won’t need radiant heating. It would be a cost with an extremely long payback period. Instead of whole-house radiant heating, perhaps consider localized systems in the bathrooms, just to have a nice warm spot for your feet when you step out of the shower. Anything beyond that may be a waste of money and resources.
