Going Off the Grid

Amsterdam-based architects Merkx+Girod create a composition in this bathroom that is both balanced and unbalanced—and immensely appealing. Careful squares on the floor and glass doors are nudged out of stasis by the trough-like sink. The conservative color palette, combining black with pale blue and grey, is fresh in how it's blocked out and gives weight to the room. Soft daylight washes all the elements together.
