Inspired by Cubism, this renovation creates a dynamic contrast to an existing 1980s contemporary home. Concentrating in the master suite and guest bathroom, we worked with our client to create a modern oasis that embraces a visual composition of interlocking planes and materials while creating an open connection to each space and the outdoors.
We began by opening up the segmented floor plan for the master bedroom into a connected large space. The original bathroom and closet were converted into a single bathroom while a secondary bedroom adjacent to the master was converted into the closet. Each space is separated by transitional elements that uses interlocking fragmented planes that allow for privacy while maintaining a visual connection. The use of Carrera marble and glass mosaic creates an elegant contrast to the steam shower which uses a natural dark volcanic tile. The walk-in rain shower features a large skylight with a floating rain head allowing nature to reveal itself. The use of natural light creates a luminous atmosphere throughout the bathroom. Lit by skylights above, the mosaic tile serve the dual purpose of an accent wall and backslash. The mosaic wall also incorporates all of the colors used in the bathroom, while furthering the cubist composition. The transition from the master bathroom into the master suite can be open or closed by a pocket door that connects into a floating wall. When closed only one’s feet are visible below the floating wall revealing the space beyond. While entering into the master bedroom, the first thing that catches the eyes is the stunning Brazilian redwood floors. The hardwoods are used throughout the bedroom and closet and create a rich contrast to espresso cabinets used for storage.
As a final touch, we redesigned a secondary bathroom to create a special guest bathroom for the main house. The focus of this bathroom is the white stone quartzite used to wrap the front and back of the tub. The Quartzsite accent wall and contemporary vanity with its beautiful vessel sink work together to create a unique modern design experience that is truly one of a kind.
