Bathrooms may be private spaces, but sometimes they are right in the sightline of a major axis through the home. This small bathroom is at one end of a dark passage immediately off the entry hall. Its position was a key factor determining the design of the remodeled space by architect Gregory Thomas of CG&S Design-Build. “Since the only natural 52 light into the hall is through the door of this bathroom, we needed to ensure the light could still penetrate,” he says. “The bathroom also had to look beautiful when glimpsed from the entry hall.” The former cubicle-style layout was rearranged to achieve this. A new large glasswalled shower beside the existing window occupies the full width of the room. search | save | share at
