Commendation Most Innovative Bathroom Design

Designer: Rachcoff Vella Architecture Pty Ltd
Builder: Layton Builders
Photographer: Shannon McGrath
Location: Portsea, VIC

This bathroom celebrates a fresh well-articulated approach to bathroom design. A space defined by beautiful free-standing pieces of furniture allows the entire room to be experienced. A continuation of the materials, colours and themes, as established throughout the entire project, set a strict regime and restrained material selection. This reduces noise and allows for specific details to shine, demonstrating that ‘less can be more’. Connection to the view and to external spaces make for an exciting space that can be controlled by screens and furnishings to moderate how liberated the user wants to be.
