Swathes of cool, white Turkish marble envelop the master bathroom of this revamped Victorian-era house in Melbourne. Channellin­g a Japanese bathhouse or Turkish hammam, the generous proportion­s of the space, which includes a steam room and separate shower, along with the luxurious finishes, promote the ambience of a calm and private sanctuary. Interior architect Kate McCluskey, who worked on the project with architect Matt Hainsworth of Cera Stribley, positioned the custom marble bath so it’s spotlit by the skylight above. Marble mosaic tiles highlight the curved ceiling and floating bench of the steam room and shower, while black steel-framed shower doors provide a contrastin­g contempora­ry accent in the neutral scheme.
