The prior owners of this home had very modest windows installed in the master bathroom since the room was located on the entry side of the house. When the new owners moved in, they wanted to let more natural light into the bathroom. Privacy was still a concern so, with a more modern and Asian design aesthetic, we suggested an expanded wall of glass behind a stained wooden screen to filter light and views.
The result is a dramatic space with generous daylight from both the new glass wall, as well as a skylight. The new “wet zone” of the tub and shower is separated from the dressing and vanity area by a frameless glass wall and door. An added bonus is the indoor/outdoor connection through the new screened outdoor enclosure directly adjacent to the bath’s glass wall. This area is a great plant habitat, allows for a small outdoor sculpture and, with creative landscaping, has a small creek element running at grade providing the sound of water throughout the master bath.
