Queen Anne Bathroom

The original layout of the master bathroom in this 1930's art-deco home saw the shower, toilet, and one of two vanities shoved off into one side of the room so that each interfered with the other to varying degrees. Meanwhile the other side of the room was left mostly empty and open without any real function. Constrained by the existing openings in the brick exterior we developed a design that would not only improve the functionality of the facilities, but also increase storage both inside and adjacent to the bathroom, improve the ventilation of and eliminate a mold-trap within the old shower, and introduce natural light into a previously dim closet. Some details were remade to preserve the bathroom's connection to the rest of the home, while new art deco details were introduced that were either integral to the aforementioned design points or offered new amenities to the space.
