Bathroomy

I've always found the accepted concept of the bathroom limiting; the idea that all those critical bodily functions are to be performed in cubicle-like confines is a bit depressing. This design is more to my liking. Its sequence of spaces is more humane and the varying degrees of soft light is gentler both on the eyes and the soul. fougeron.com

  1. You have a delightful way of finding the essential in things. I especially love your take on this bathroom. My first impression of the 440 House when I followed the link was that too much was going on. It seemed kind of busy. Then I realized it was just one perfection after another demanding my attention. Their whole portfolio is like this. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. I considered posting the image of the back-to-back sinks...but then realized it would be just another individual element—another 'thing'—to see. This picture, though, conveys a quality about the room.
    Thanks for reading.

  3. You're absolutely right. It's a fascinating thing (the back-to-back sink) but just another thing without the room. Notice also that the handheld shower has a small room to itself.
