Singular and Serene

A remodel turns the only bath this Austin homeowner has into the only one she needs

When Teresa Anderson decided to redo her outdated bathroom, she needed the work to be done quickly: It's the only bath in her 1950s home. Builder David Wilkes worked efficiently, and he temporarily reset the toilet several times in order to keep the room semifunctional. He was executing a plan from architect Cindy Black, which involved eliminating a linen closet and putting the toilet in its place, thereby freeing up space for a new open shower and a slightly smaller tub. Other features include shelves that appear to float above the tub but are supported by invisible brackets, an egg-shaped sink atop a curved countertop, and a back wall covered with blue-glass tile in a staggered pattern.
