A place of respite

The investors stay in the 128-square-meter apartment between one trip and the next. That's why the location was so important to them. They chose the Mordor district of Warsaw, as the part of the capital filled with office buildings and company complexes is jokingly called. They bought the apartment from a developer, so that they could fill it with their own story from the beginning. Among other things, the owners dreamed of an unusual, bright bathroom. The investors wanted it to have room for a window, a pair of sinks and a large shower area.

A shower with a view

To achieve this, the space between the bathroom and the bedroom had to be changed. To maximize the washing area, the dressing room had to be moved. Now it is a part of the bedroom. As a result, the bathroom has been significantly enlarged and has gained a window that investors dreamed of.

- We wanted the bathroom to be bright, especially the part with the sinks - explains Deer Design architect Aleksandra Polakowska.

The space was illuminated by the use of glazing in the wall dividing the sink area from the shower. Now, more light enters from the window through the translucent glass. The washbasins were embedded in the connector. Below them there is a capacious cabinet with drawers. Above the washbashins, between the glass panes, hangs a large mirror. Despite its large size, it looks very light, as if it is levitating above the countertop.

Hidden functionality

There is plenty of storage space here. One entire wall is made from a built-in. It was created by Aleksandra Przychodzka of Pracownia Stolarska Deer Wood. Deep cabinets are hidden behind simple fronts in dark veneer and open shelves were left at the sinks. This is a great place for cosmetics and handy accessories. Thanks to the black cladding, the built-ins become virtually unnoticeable.

Maintaining intimacy

A contrast was used on the walls and floor. Smooth tiles in a shade of sandy beige are juxtaposed with matte anthracite stoneware with a distinct texture. The second also appear in the shower area. The walk-in shower, with a large rain shower head, opens up to the bathroom, but at the same time is enclosed by the washbasin wall. This solution creates a sense of intimacy and gives an unusual look. The challenge in this zone was to properly contour the floor so that the water drains gently without posing a threat to the rest of the room. This was achieved by creating a convenient slope and using a linear drain.
