When the owners decided to create their master bath, they combined two adjacent baths with an outdoor covered patio. The goal was to create one large His & Hers bath that would feel open, yet lend itself to privacy as needed. In true Japanese form, the “outdoor” area was designated for a soaking tub and an open shower.
Located three stories high and at the most private corner of the home, the master bathroom breaks the box to open to lake and city skyline views. The bathtub is engulfed by windows to offer a rare experience of bathing high above in the open, yet with confident privacy.
A restricted lot made it a challenge to accommodate a larger kitchen and two full baths for frequent guests. Tall ceilings with self-closing window skylights created air, light, and an illusion of spaciousness, and spa-like feel.
