Brief

Cre­ate an el­e­gant, in­ti­mate bath­room that takes ad­van­tage of the sea view. When it came to de­sign­ing their house at One­tangi on Wai­heke Is­land, An­drew Glenn and Jonathan Ruther­furd Best took in­spi­ra­tion from bath­rooms in ho­tels by ar­chi­tect Kerry Hill. “We wanted to recre­ate that peace­ful seren­ity in our home,” says Glen. “We of­ten travel to Bali and wanted a feel­ing of in­ti­mate lux­ury, to cre­ate an oa­sis.” What was the big­gest chal­lenge with this bath­room? AN­DREW GLENN Get­ting the lay­out right as we wanted an en­closed toi­let. The Crit­tal screen was an amend­ment which we all agree was fan­tas­tic. The sea view from the bath must be stun­ning. It cer­tainly is, and the bird life is also in­cred­i­ble, so we are dou­bly blessed. How have you dealt with stor­age? The medicine cab­i­net can store so much and we love that it’s hid­den. We also have plenty of stor­age in all the wardrobes and walk-in wardrobe.
