Coates Design Architects has completed a bathroom with a sunken bathtub as part of an overall house project on Bainbridge Island in the State of Washington.
The bathroom has a number of design elements that work together to create a calming environment. Clear stained fir plywood adds a natural touch to the space. At one end of the bathroom is the shower, with a white and light grey mosaic tile shower, that even features tiles on the ceiling.
At the other end of the bathroom is a 4ft x 9ft window that frames a spectacular view of the Seattle Skyline from across Elliot Bay.
Enjoying the view is the ‘ofuro’ or Japanese style soaking tub. The custom one-of-a-kind bathtub measures in at 3.5′ long x 4.5′ wide x 4′ deep and is made from cast-in-place concrete.
The bathtub has a small step to aid getting into the tub, while a built-in seat and an inline heater that helps keep the water warm adds a touch of comfort.
The floors throughout the bathroom are concrete with a soy based stain and sealer, while a shag rug adds a soft touch underfoot.
The floating wood vanity features an open shelf and drawers, a waterfall edge counter made from Ceasarstone in mocha with a small fleck pattern, an under-mount sink, and a Hansgrohe faucet.
