Concord Green HomeBeach Style Bathroom, Boston

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.

    Using the picture above, moving backwards: on the right is the door, then the water closet, then the stackable washer and dryer. On the left is a counter for folding with storage cabinets underneath. Wish I had a picture available.

    The plans changed prior to the final build. Moving back from main photo on this page, on right is entry door, then wall, then washer/dryer with folding counter and upper cabinets above. On left is tall wardrobe which stores laundry hampers and linens, and creates separation from toilet. Wardrobe is shown in image below.

    I would search for antique work tables. I believe that was what this designer said this one was. It also resembles some farmhouse-style kitchen islands I've seen around - I wonder if one could be modified to serve as a vanity.

    Good idea Becky - this result is one of the first to come up and they have a large selection:

    Hello all. Thanks for your interest in this bathroom design. I commissioned the window treatments to look like sails on a boat, complete with pulley hardware and rope for cord. The shower is approximately 3.5' x 11'. Faucets are by Rohl. The v-groove horizontal planks are 7" high (will have to check which way they face). Shower is tiled floor, walls and ceiling for extra moisture protection.

    They are operable. I designed them to mimic sails on a boat, complete with pulley hardware and rope cording. They were custom made by Acorn Interiors.

    I used Rohl's Hi Arc Lavatory faucets on the lab-style sinks and the antique work table I found in Cambridge.

    Hi jakeande.

    Thank you for your question.

    I repurposed an antique work table I found at a local antique shop that specializes in pieces from Europe. My goal was to add warmth and interest to an otherwise all white bath, and provide a rough juxtaposition to the smooth lab-style sinks and gooseneck faucets. I have to give credit to Patrick Hughes, who supervised the build on behalf of Aedi Construction. His team fitted this rustic, uneven piece beautifully into the space.

    The vanity is a nice mix of hidden and open storage. “The lower slatted shelf is great for storage bins,” Tharp says. “They are even easier to pull out than drawers and hide a lot.“Aedi Construction did a great job of accommodating the work table’s antique irregularities, including rebuilding interior drawers to allow for plumbing while salvaging precious storage,” the designer says.TeamArchitecture: ZeroEnergy DesignInterior designer: Lisa Tharp DesignMore: All the Details on 3 Single-Sink VanitiesBrowse farmhouse vanities in the Photos

    7. Barn lighting. While these sconces are new, they have a vintage barn look. They also pick up on the galvanized tin bucket underneath the vanity. Browse some of our favorite barn light fixtures.

    The bathroom also takes advantage of the natural light. Clear shower doors allow the rest of the room to receive light from the window in the shower stall, and a carefully composed floor plan maximizes the space. Lots of white makes the space feel roomy and open.

    Pony wall has bench seating, how would a niche go into the pony wall? Don't care for the shower door opening.

    This is the look I'm trying to avoid ... the metal frame all around ....

    Everything but the drawers or whatever you’d call that and I’d add yellow accents
