A day-ending, alfresco shower with a view of the water—sounds pretty nice, yes? Like the rest of the residence, this shower pavilion sits on a three-foot plinth of cinder block, to comply with building codes in this flood-prone area. Open to the sky, the stainless steel-framed structure is wrapped on three sides with etched glass; one wall [to the right in the photo] features a pivot door. davidjamesonarchitect.com
