San Jose, California
2021 National/Regional CotY Award Winner, Universal Design - Bath
The master bath in this penthouse needed a universal design update to accommodate a homeowner with limited mobility. The goal was to create a luxurious, obstacle-free space for the homeowner to easily navigate with access to basic bathroom functions. Because of the home’s twenty-second floor location, all changes had to remain within the existing footprint and plumbing locations could not change. The tub space was converted into a curbless walk-in shower with quartzite shower walls, a built-in bench, hand-held shower, and easy-reach grab bars. The custom walnut vanity includes one set of doors that fully retract, providing full access to the vanity sink, and gold-tone faucet fixtures with touchless technology.
