Light Passing Through
This 1890’s neighborhood home was gutted and remodeled. This first floor bathroom was existing, but in much need of a complete overhaul. The walls are shiplap and the two stained glass windows are reclaimed pieces from a local architectural salvage warehouse. The windows allow for light to pass through to the adjacent room and vice versa. With the dynamic nature of the ambient light coming from two different directions, the colors and illumination in the vintage windows are constantly changing. One window is in the powder room and the other one is just outside it as you enter, which is also the landing to the stairwell. Since the bathroom is a small space, a shelf below the stained glass was cut out of the wall to create a place for storage while not blocking the opening of the door.
