Connecting with the Nature
The USP of the washroom is the subconscious sense of greens in the space. The introduction of a piece of nature in the inert space generated a soothing effect. It elevates the space beyond its functional aspect to the essence of luxury. Nature-based therapy is the best way to unwind.
“The washroom is designed to ensure interaction with greens even if the user is there for a brief period of time. This is done by placing the shower and WC cubicle right in front of the private greens. A full-length mirror along the washbasin placed opposite to the greens provides an illusion of greens on both sides. Moreover, the use of clear glass in the cubicles ensured an uninterrupted view from the Jacuzzi corner,” shares Rudraksh Charan, Principal Architect, 42mm Architecture.
The clients desired for their house to have a spacious vibe filled with light. Their guidelines were to create a modern and minimalist design that balances beauty while not compromising on functionality. The toilet is attached to the master bedroom and the client also wanted to have a Jacuzzi in the washroom. The washroom layout was modified to incorporate more space within. The different functions were compartmentalised to create a symmetric look in an asymmetrical space. The use of clear glass ensured unobstructed vision of the private greens and the panoramic view from the penthouse. This provided a voluminous vibe with ample natural light.
Colour Palette and aesthetics
The colour palette is largely composed of neutrals grey, black and white tied together in one rhythm with the use of natural material wood. Each aspect of the washroom is designed to stay true to the minimalist anatomy yet not lose the inherent warmth in the household. The inert bareness of minimalistic design is accentuated to create a captivating and engaging experience with natural components (plants). Functional efficiency and use of abstract geometry in the material’s natural grain infused with a subconscious sense of green are used to craft a refreshing experience in these spaces.
