The Palisades of Mount Adams: Model Bath

The master bath of Unit 4 of the Palisades condominiums provided the designers a common challenge — how to make a 144 square ft bath feel open and spacious. We began by enlarging the door opening and aligning it with the dressing room door opening opposite the bath. French doors with translucent glass were added. Large surface-mounted vanity bowls were chosen to provide a higher bowl height without looking like a wet bar. Storage is wall hung and vanity areas are open – yielding a light, spacious appearance. Similarly, the freestanding tub and open shower were selected to visually extend the limited space. Finally, a uniform neutral pallet provides a unifying backdrop to the composition of objects.
