As part of a whole-house remodel designed to create a place of meditation, Anni Tilt’s architectural firm designed a first-floor bath with a Japanese aesthetic and some clever storage solutions. The new bath occupies the same footprint as the old bath, but the tub is in a new window bay, which was a less costly way of creating more space than building a full addition. With its elevated position and view of the garden out the window, the large tub reinforces the Japanese ritual of bathing. A tansu-style tub surround features steps with pullout drawers. On the other side of the bath is a custom fir vanity with a bamboo sink. Entrance to the bath is through a door carved on both sides by a local artist.
