Encino Modern asian bathroom

Encino Modern

This remodeled bathroom now serves as powder room for the kitchen/family room and a guest bath adjacent to the media room with its pull-down Murphy bed. Since the bathroom opens directly off the family room, we created a small entry with planter and low views to the garden beyond. The shower now features a deck of ironwood, smooth-trowel plaster walls and an enclosure made of 3-form recycle resin panels with embedded reeds. The space is flooded with natural light from the new skylight above.

Hi there, For these bathroom walls we used a smooth troweled cement plaster with a sealer. The construction is much like you would use/see on exterior walls.

The "curtain" is actually a fixed panel of resin by 3Form: The possibilities are endless as you mix and match colors and textures. Have fun!

We used ironwood, also known as Ipe. You can simply treat it with oil (like a butcher block counter) depending on the wood type. It will take a bit of maintenance - oiling it once/year for example.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Step Into a Refreshing Outdoor Shower
This space plays with the boundaries between indoors and out, with the stunning glass panel marking the dividing line. The shower is open to the sky.
ds design studio added this to Get the Look: Falling Water in the Bath
Translucent resin panel with embedded reeds. A ribbon of water seems to flow from the upper left side of the shower. Reeds provide a natural element and visual texture and define the directional flow. Behind it is a rainfall shower head. This panel from 3form is made from 40-percent recycled resin.
Vertical plantings inspire and reflect the lines of this outdoor shower as well. The shower curtain picks up the vertical lines, with shimmers of light between, a perfect echo of the horsetail reeds seen here.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Japanese
Style Secret: PlantsIntroducing a touch of living greenery infuses a Japanese-style interior with vitality. Choose traditional plants such as bonsai and bamboo, potted in sleek, minimalist containers made of wood, stone or another organic substance. Keep the palette focused — green foliage is more appropriate than a bounty of colorful blooms.East meets West: Want to venture beyond classic Japanese plants? Bring in specimens that suit the style's sleek, minimalist look: horsetail, ornamental grasses and more. Or explore ikebana, the time-honored art of flower arranging (and there's no shame in having the florist pinch-hit if you're all thumbs when it comes to floral design).
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Texture
The surface textures in this spalike outdoor shower area make it so very special. According to the designer: "The shower now features a deck of ironwood, smooth-trowel plaster walls and an enclosure made of recycled resin panels with embedded reeds." The privacy panel with the embedded reeds echoes the nearby planting of reedlike horsetail (Equisetum hyemale) — a nice, textural touch.

I like this photo because it is very modern looking, yet it still manages to have an outdoorsy kind of feel. it has a very monotone background, and then splashes of color that mix very well with the grey of the walls. The plant and door (thing?) also kind of match in texture and gives the room a connected, flowing kind of feel. The see-through roof also adds an even more open feel when you're in the shower, and provides a tiny bit of light. It is also just a neat idea to have a shower outside.

I like the stony look of the walls around the shower it makes the space bold and relaxing. The use of the flower bed beside the shower gives off the outdoor feel especially with the use of the window right beside with the actual outdoor flower bed adjacent. The use of the wooden floor palates reminds me of a sauna and the different shades of brown makes the light reflect off each piece differently. Finally the shower curtains design allows light to be brought through the clear areas with allowing the bright colors to shine as the light through the sky roof shines.
