Wash basin with Axor Bouroullec bathroom mixers.

Alpine Chic – modern bathroom architecture in an energy-saving home

A tangible, natural ambience coincides with innovative technologies – even in the bathroom

The Alpine Chic House gives a very modern interpretation to wooden architecture: the rooms flow into one other and open up to the world outside, while ecology and natural materials coincide with high-tech design. New bathroom concepts featuring Axor Bouroullec products offer contemporary convenience. The planner used the bathroom collection's innovative solutions to customise the wash basin area. He used an Axor ShowerProducts innovation in the floor-level showers. Moreover, Hansgrohe's water-saving technology in the mixers and showers meets the requirements of home-building company Baufritz, a pioneer of ecological construction.

The feel-good bathroom is airy and clearly structured: the wash basin is eye-catching, located in the centre of the room and freely accessible from three sides. The installation technology is concealed in the base of the bath tub, which is immediately adjacent to the wash basin and ends in a platform in front of the window. The platform lends structure to the room and can also be used as a seat if needed. The wash basin, featuring an Axor Bouroullec mixer, truly benefits from the freedom of design, which is a hallmark of the collection: this made it possible to arrange the handles on the left rim of the wash basin, to satisfy the individual requirements. The floor unit and the platform both pursue the ubiquitous wood theme.

The floor-level shower, which is separated off by an opaque glass sliding door, underlines the modern, future-oriented aspects of the bathroom design: the seamless transition of floor and shower area sums up the cross-generation bathroom concept, and the level of comfort offered makes it suitable for bathroom users of all ages. The bathroom in the Alpine Chic House is also very much in line with the trend: floor-level showers form an integral part of the lifestyle trend nowadays, particularly when it comes to sophisticated interior décor. The same is true of the shower's lateral drain: the linear drainage system is concealed in the wall, leaving a smooth, homogeneous shower area with no tripping hazards.

The bathroom is enhanced by technical aesthetics in the form of the Showerpipe, which is from the Axor ShowerProducts designed by Front, and this fits in perfectly with the authentic design of the house. The Showerpipe is equipped with water-saving AirPower technology and, with just one click of the Select button it dispenses soft rain (Rain Air) or a powerful shower spray (Rain).
