The client brief was to reconfigure and refurbish the existing bathroom with the aim of creating more open space. This was achieved by emphasising the length and height of the space, using a single material to clad the whole bathroom, the use of clear glass to separate the shower from the sink area or the sauna and the introduction of a long piece of black travertine as a bench for the sauna and the adjacent shower. The dark travertine piece is backlit to give the impression that it floats, while being cantilevered from its only two edges.
