Warmth and comfort are the key in this private bathroom. Axor mixers add touches
The owners of this architect-designed house attached a great deal of importance to considerations of sustainability and natural materials. It is therefore not just a case of the timber house having the best possible energy technology, the intention was to use as much wood as possible in the bathroom as well. The owners got their inspiration from the Axor Massaud bathroom collection, whose natural ambience and free-standing bath tub they particularly liked. As well as homeliness, they also wanted design quality and fitness for purpose for their “bathroom as a place of retreat”. It is no wonder that the requirements were met in an exemplary way with Axor mixers and accessories, along with Hansgrohe shower technology.
The shower offers maximum transparency
The bathroom, which is used by a family of four, was given a spacious, floor-level shower, with the only separation being from the WC by a pane of glass. That means that this area of approx. 1.8 square metres is hardly conspicuous at all. Large-format tiles enhance the clean-lined architecture and blend into a seamless floor area. The drain is in a channel on the wall. The natural stone design of the tiles is in perfect harmony with the dark wood which was also used for the furniture. Thanks to AirPower, the Raindance S 240 overhead shower offers a pleasurable, full-bodied shower experience, even with an economical 12 l/min flow which is restricted in this bathroom due to the heat pump.
Lots of shelf space and a place to sit
The free-standing bath tub the owners wanted is placed across the corner to save space and is built into a platform which also offers shelves and a place to sit. As with the floorboards, certified merbau tropical wood was used which, when oiled, is not only suitable for bathrooms, but also pleasant to walk on. The wash basin area is also made using the same wood. The owners deliberately went for a single, surface-mounted bowl: “The long mirror and the large shelf area are important. Cleaning your teeth next to one another is no problem”. The concealed mixer from the Axor Citterio E bathroom collection leaves space around the wash basin and is both elegant and functional.
The owners added a final special touch to the design with an Axor Starck V mixer in the guest WC.
