Clever Concept for a Brilliant Bath
A creative layout yields a one-of-a-kind bathroom big on function, light, and views
This master bathroom featured in this article is an example of architect Charles Moore’s design approach. The high ceiling and bright-white spaces are complemented by simple, elegant hardware and fixtures to create a bathroom that is definitively modern. Large floor-to-ceiling windows provide an immense view of the site and the surrounding woods, and they contribute to an uncontained feeling in the bath that is nothing short of dramatic. Where this new master bath really shines, though, is in the arrangement of its plan. All of the typical fixtures one would expect in a master bathroom are organized in a somewhat atypical fashion in this space, and the impact is substantial. The floor plan is arranged so that the shower, vanity, and tub areas all have appropriate, if not equal, access to the daylight and the views provided by the large wall of windows. A 360° circulation path encompasses the bathroom, completely integrating the bath into the master suite.
