Although petite, all materials were selected and placed with great care and thought. The client came to us with limited space and need for breathing room and storage. Before the remodel, the door opened into the toilet, the tub was useless and finishes were eroding.
Today, natural light can still pool into the space and onto the new-painted concrete floor, but with a more private approach. The toilet is now tucked away from the door swing, allowing more refuge. In regards to the physicality of the space, after re-framing the walls and removing plaster, we were able to squeak a few more inches away and gain storage niches and get a standard tub size.
Many tricks are used to help make spaces feel larger such as light, hierarchy with correct context in relation to fixtures (small toilet-tank width), minimizing horizontal surfaces for clutter, and air under a sink. Small spaces require just as much attention, and if not more, than larger ones.
