A bathroom fit for the future, featuring contemporary Hansgrohe comforts
For these clients, it was of ultimate importance to design a bathroom that could keep up with changes in life circumstances and requirements. When renovating the attic of their private residence, they therefore focused on creating a floor-level shower area, timeless and clear architecture as well as personalised convenience features. Hansgrohe mixers for the wash basins and shower accommodate their requirements in a variety of ways, for example the Metris mixers with the ComfortZone. Their height and ease of use coordinate with the wash basin architecture in the bathroom, likewise on the hand basin in the WC next door. Both rooms are separated by a glass pane, which is transparent only where you have the continuous wash basin console. The owners felt it was important for the inner WC to have a view and natural light.
The 6.5 square metre bathroom can be merged with the WC so that it is all barrier-free, which makes the bathroom planning exceptionally fit for the future: to achieve this, the glass partition can be removed easily as part of a simple conversion. The resulting ensemble of rooms will therefore be accessible both from the hallway (currently the only access to the WC) and also from the bedroom. At the moment the bathroom is accessed via an open dressing room. This, along with the wooden floorboards, really underlines the quality of the living environment. The quality of time spent in the room is notably improved by the two seating options: podium areas constructed around the wash basin and next to the shower. A built-in cupboard also adds visual tranquility to the bathroom.
Lots of space and shelves
Notable characteristics of the shower are its clear architecture and convenience. The intuitive operation of the ShowerSelect shower control contributes to this, since the clear symbols make selecting the consumers really easy, at the touch of a button. The slimline concealed installation thermostat fits in perfectly with the open shower, where the Raindance overhead shower blends in with the architecture. While the overhead shower could be integrated flush with the ceiling, the shower's drain is designed to be inconspicuous in a channel off to the side. Incidentally this user-friendly solution, which reduces the risk of stumbling, means that there is no need for the shower to have a glass partition.
