We designed this bathroom for a family with two children, living in a renovated mansion where the garden join the adjacent woods. The authenticity of the building was preserved by retaining the original elements, such as the oak beams, floor and bedroom door. By placing the bath in the centre, a possibility was created to make optimal use of the available space.
The spacious shower and bath offer luxury and the washing basins are placed opposite of each other. They are open to use from every angle.
The soft lines and the structure of the tadelakt* provides a meditative tone to the whole, fitting for a bathroom. Taking a bath turns out to be a sacred experience.
The woodwork and wide, movable wall create an open environment and still keep everything intimate. Both woodwork, the smoothness of the tadelakt and the carefully placed lighting add to the atmosphere.


(*) Tadelakt or Tadellakt is a bright, nearly waterproof lime plaster which can be used on the inside of buildings and on the outside. It is the traditional coating of the palaces, hammams and bathrooms of the riads in Morocco. Its traditional application includes being polished with a river stone and treated with a soft soap to acquire its final appearance and water resistance. Tadelakt has a luxurious, soft aspect with undulations due to the work of the artisans who finish it; in certain installations, it is suitable for making bathtubs, showers, and washbasins and confers great decorative capacities. Traditionally, tadelakt is produced with the lime of the area of Marrakech.
