This ensuite bath, for a new town home beside the Ottawa River, was conceived as a tribute to the restorative power of the ocean. The adjoining bedroom wall created an irregular shaped room; this was addressed by creating forms that come into this room ‘squaring’ it off. The ‘squaring’ off was essential due to the angle of continuous hardwood from the bedroom. The forms are all clad with one inch tumbled marble tiles; here the attention to detail and the craftsmanship required to execute it are extraordinary. All outside corners are mitered to create these solid forms. The forms themselves all serve to contribute to the function of the room, especially the tub platform extending into the shower stall. The pebble pattern on the floor creates acupressure on the feet while showering, just like walking at the ocean. The curve of the tub platform is repeated for the custom vanity; which features vessels sinks, towel niche, and pebble hardware. To complete the ocean tribute are photos of the ocean views taken by the owner during his trips to the seaside.
