OLYMPIC GREY MARBLE BATHROOM

Modern, Bridgeport

The owners wanted a unique bathroom that would complement their beautiful, one of a kind, modern residence. Olympic Grey marble from Turkey was selected. This was a renovation so we were particularly careful in handling and installation. There were many challenges to the project. First, the material is quite specific in its veining so we needed to make a mock up to determine how to cut the slabs in a way that would allow the vein to follow around the room (in and out of niches). We were working with a finite amount of material, 14 slabs, so we needed to design and engineer the project accordingly. In addition, the client wanted to maximize efficiency for cost control so we designed the seam placement to fall strategically (behind the toilet, for example) so that he would not need to purchase additional material. The bathroom is actually quite small so there were significant constraints in trying to fit and maneuver the large panels in tight spaces. The vanity countertop was made in Pental Quartz Thassos Polished 1-1/4”. We carved channels in the vanity top to insert Troca Mother of Pearl Flat Liners. We followed this same detail at the Tub Apron.
