Eden Prairie, Minnesota
2020 Regional CotY Award Winner, Universal Design - Bath
The clients wanted a bathroom reminiscent of those found in European hotels. They also wanted it to be accessible without looking institutional. The original bathroom had almost no parallel walls and was full of challenging angles. Relocating the laundry chute and reconfiguring the tub and sink drains helped create a Universal space within the existing footprint. An easy access barrier free shower includes a grab bar and hand-held shower, which repl is adjacent to the new tub. A knee wall conceals the toilet and a closet was built in the original shower location.
