Upper West Side Combo modern-bathroom

Upper West Side Combo

The owners of this prewar apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan wanted to combine two dark and tightly configured units into a single unified space. StudioLAB was challenged with the task of converting the existing arrangement into a large open three bedroom residence. The previous configuration of bedrooms along the Southern window wall resulted in very little sunlight reaching the public spaces. Breaking the norm of the traditional building layout, the bedrooms were moved to the West wall of the combined unit, while the existing internally held Living Room and Kitchen were moved towards the large South facing windows, resulting in a flood of natural sunlight. Wide-plank grey-washed walnut flooring was applied throughout the apartment to maximize light infiltration. A concrete office cube was designed with the supplementary space which features walnut flooring wrapping up the walls and ceiling. Two large sliding Starphire acid-etched glass doors close the space off to create privacy when screening a movie. High gloss white lacquer millwork built throughout the apartment allows for ample storage. LED Cove lighting was utilized throughout the main living areas to provide a bright wash of indirect illumination and to separate programmatic spaces visually without the use of physical light consuming partitions. Custom floor to ceiling Ash wood veneered doors accentuate the height of doorways and blur room thresholds. The master suite features a walk-in-closet, a large bathroom with radiant heated floors and a custom steam shower. An integrated Vantage Smart Home System was installed to control the AV, HVAC, lighting and solar shades using iPads.

Does it work well or does water leak and get everywhere? Thanks.

VanGo Shower Glass
It appears the screen/ shower shield may be a little shorter than I would usually recommend. If you have access to a tub with a shower curtain, I recommend experimenting with different widths until you find what you want, and then order your glass to the same width. If done properly with either clips or silicone only you shouldn't have any leakage from around the glass at all though. They are also available in opening versions... its custom so do whatever you like!

this is 36 inch shower handheld slide bar and then valve-but tub spout is contolled by two levers instead of being on diverter was this done so both handheld and shower can be on at same time? would shower pressure be lessened or are they on two separate water supply lines?
