Hawthorn East, Hastings Road
The Challenge: Design a bathroom for a client with limited mobility.
Ease of use for both carer and client are paramount here and this spacious bathroom is packed full of practicality and functionality. Reinforcement built into the shower walls allows for additional support fixtures and/or a suspended shower seat to be added as the client’s need increases.
A strategically placed composite stone bath gives initial impact upon entry. Although it is more akin to a work of art than a piece of utility furniture, the taps are positioned for the carers’ benefit during assisted bathing, and the practical layout of fixtures and fittings ensure ease of movement.
The restyled window offers an uncluttered line of sight to the private garden outside.
Best features: Art, function, simplicity and beauty all in one bathroom.Designer: Owen
