The brief for this project was to create a bedroom,
dressing room and ensuite from the existing space which was poorly configured.
A dressing room was created by erecting a false wall across the space and adding two pocket doors for access. The ensuite bathroom was created from the old ensuite and a hallway. So that the ensuite did not then feel enclosed and the exterior wall appear too obvious, glass blocks were set into the wall to feed light through to the shower area and to add interest. There was a requirement for a walk in shower which would not have been possible with the old configuration, with the new configuration it was and a large walk in shower was installed. Glass mosaics were the tile of choice in the shower area as they worked well with the glass blocks. An oriental inspired free standing bath and glass sink completed the look.
The bedroom area was then of the appropriate size for the bed and an antique Chinese linen press which was used to house the television.
