Winning ways A sandstone cliff face defines the winning 2014 HIA Australian Bathroom Design The innovative use of materials can transform a bathroom, and create a strong talking point, as this project shows. The bathroom, by Darren Genner and Simona Castagna of Minosa Design in New South Wales, has won the top prize in the 2014 HIA Australian Bathroom Design awards partnered by GWA Bathrooms & Kitchens. In announcing the award, the judges said the distinctive, open-plan bathroom has it all, including a remarkable sandstone cliff face that is a “show stopper”. The judges also praised the luxurious day spa style of the design, which incorporates two tall, mirrored blade walls that support a custom Corian vanity. The blades partition the bathing space from the bedroom and dressing area, without obstructing sightlines through to the dramatic cliff face. A large glass sliding wall opens up the entire bathroom to an outdoor patio in front of the sandstone. The judges said the “exquisite choice of materials and colours create a harmonious and well-balanced bathroom”. The materials include large-format basalt floor tiles, black Bisazza crocodile tiles, sandy wood veneers and crisp Corian.
