Once a dark and air­less room, this en­suite has been el­e­vated to a rest­ful, light- filled re­treat.

JOY STORY DE­SIGNER EMMA TEM­PLE­TON “We set out to cre­ate a space with un­der­stated lux­ury us­ing sim­ple, hon­est ma­te­ri­als. The space is both a place of daily rou­tine and rest­ful re­treat, thus re­quir­ing both prac­ti­cal and beau­ti­ful so­lu­tions. The po­si­tion of the en­suite within the dwelling had pre­vi­ously meant that the room had no ven­ti­la­tion and no nat­u­ral light. We were able to ad­dress these is­sues with the use of sky­lights and care­fully con­sid­ered ma­te­rial selec­tion to en­hance the best qual­i­ties of the space. Due to the lo­ca­tion of the en­suite within the house we had lim­ited op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­tro­duce nat­u­ral light while re­tain­ing pri­vacy. The an­gled sky­light to the south pro­vides beau­ti­ful, soft nat­u­ral light. This is the qual­ity that makes the space invit­ing and joy­ful. The hand­made tiles cel­e­brate this light­ing ef­fect, shim­mer­ing at all times of the day.” tem­ple­ton.com.au
