Architect Fiona Dunin pushed things right to the edge in the hard-wearing, contempora­ry interpreta­tion of a country farmhouse on Tasmania’s Bruny Island (opposite). Originally planned as an outdoor space, this bathroom with feature sunken bath is now encased by frameless windows with unobstruct­ed views to the surroundin­g paddocks. Inspired by the historic chimneysta­cks seen throughout the island, Fiona lined the bath in reddish-brown tiles. “The sunken bath effectivel­y immerses the occupants in the rural landscape, offering a delightful­ly different experience of the land,” says Fiona.
