SKY LARK An ex­pan­sive sky­light in­stalled over the bath has seen this be­come the best- loved spot in the house. DE­SIGNER DAVID GOSS “The pre­vi­ous bath­room was dark and in poor con­di­tion after sev­eral ren­o­va­tions over the past 100 years. A chim­ney was re­moved and a large sky­light added to bring in as much nat­u­ral light as pos­si­ble. An awk­ward floor­plan was re­con­fig­ured to in­clude a pow­der room, laun­dry and walk-in pantry within the ex­ist­ing foot­print. We wanted a con­tem­po­rary de­sign to sub­tly ref­er­ence the house’s age, so we added a change in ma­te­rial to sug­gest a dado. Modern tap­ware ref­er­ences the orig­i­nal brass door hard­ware. The ma­te­rial pal­ette was cho­sen to be tac­tile, tex­tured and soft to cre­ate a sense of seren­ity, fo­cus­ing on the light that moves through the space. The favourite el­e­ment is def­i­nitely the large sky­light over the bath. We never used the bath be­fore. Now we use it all the time! Also, the tac­tile el­e­ments such as the tap­ware and door hard­ware lend a sense of so­lid­ity and time­less­ness to the space.” stu­dio­

DE­SIGNER DAVID HICKS “The bath­room is lo­cated in the master suite of this clifftop hol­i­day home. The sandy colour pal­ette ex­tends from the other ar­eas of the house while the blue bath pro­vides a pop of ocean colour. My favourite bath­room items are the bath it­self and the sand-coloured tex­tured gran­ite we sourced from over­seas. They both com­ple­ment the style of the house and its lo­ca­tion.” What lux­ury item did you choose for this space re­gard­less of bud­get? “The Agape ‘Ot­to­cento’ bath­tub from Arte­do­mus be­cause it forms a sculp­tural cen­tre­piece for the bath­room.” david­
