Like many mid-century modern homes, this bathroom experienced an unfortunate 'update' in the 1980's which concealed its true character. A complete remodel removed the sheetrock ceiling and tiny shower compartment, revealing the beautiful wood decking found throughout the rest of the home. The perimeter soffit conceals new plumbing and accommodates new uplighting to provide a warm glow. The curbless step down shower with all glass surround expands the perception of this small bathroom. Materials such as carbonized bamboo, dark porcelain, and simple white tile provide a timeless modern character, while the glass backsplash offers a hint of color. Details are kept simple but executed with precision.
