The bathroom is part of a Victorian Villa situated on Clapham common (west side). The client requested his and hers dressing rooms and bathrooms. Timeless elegance envelopes you as you walk through the mirrored double height doors and the palette is welcoming and luxurious. From the marble floor beneath your feet to the crystal chandelier, you are immediately aware of the exceptional craftsmanship and materials that have been carefully selected to create this room.
The stunning symmetry on three sides comes from the clever use of practical and beautiful fixtures and fittings. They have been applied to great effect creating a composition of order and calm in the room. Through the large sash window the view over the leafy common can be enjoyed from the marble bath. Light is bounced around using three large mirrors seamlessly inset into the panelling. The natural light brings out the luminous quality of the marble that has been used on the counter, splash back, bath, shower and floor; all stunning examples of a classic material (Carrara marble) being applied in a practical and beautiful way.
The deep buttoned circular seat in the centre of the room transforms the space by encouraging you to stop and be still outside the traditional use of a bathroom. Whether to reflect or pamper one’s self, the seat typifies the luxury of its surroundings.
