Stage pres­ence 12

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

De­signed for a Mel­bourne fam­ily’s teenage daugh­ters, this bath­room has an out-of-the-box de­sign. The phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions of the space in­spired ar­chi­tect Rosa Coy to push the space out through an ex­ter­nal wall; from out­side it presents as a tim­ber-clad box can­tilevered over the gar­den. Inside, the lay­out is mas­ter­fully stage-man­aged. The plinth and dra­matic mar­ble wrap give the bath su­per­star sta­tus. Sun beams through the new sky­light while un­der­stated tap­ware and a stor­age niche play sup­port­ing roles. The bath tray, made from an old cedar win­dow, was a gift for the client from the project car­pen­ter.
