Switchback Residence

Winner Most Innovative Bathroom Design

Designer: Design Unity Pty Ltd
Builder: Owner/Builder
Photographer: Matthew Mallett Photography
Location: Hazelwood, VIC

‘Pure opulence, decadence, totally ostentatious and very, very affluent’. This is the only way to express the bathroom! The bathroom itself and the interior finish do not need any written articulated words; however, the use of the finishes do provide an eclectic combination. Between the joinery wooden tone, the marble tiles to the walls and floors and mosaic tile dividing wall between the bathroom and hidden shower recess all have collectively connected. One significant aspect of the bathroom is the defined sculpture feature, the oval organic form curvature, bath tub.
