Palm Court

Winner Most Innovative Bathroom Design

Designer: Wilson iD Pty Ltd
Builder: Poles-a-Part Constructions
Photographer: Gary Gross Photography
Location: East St Kilda, VIC

The strength of this compact bathroom design stems from a strong visual focus on the bath boxed in glass. Gloss black tiles anchor the hob and surrounding windows, making it feel as if one is bathing in the garden. Black zinc cladding and window frames boldly define the brightly coloured glass, providing quality visual detail that further enhances this bathroom design. The drama is softened by wood wall panelling, garden views and natural light. The cabinetry design and mirror float and – along with the generous use of glass – both create a sense of spaciousness. This 1940’s residence has been enhanced with this innovative bathroom design functioning as a powder room and master ensuite, winning with a quality aesthetic and practical layout.
