Australian design firm Minosa Design recently completed this modern bathroom with designer Darren Genner at the helm. A family sought design help with their dated bathroom in an equally dated 80’s apartment building underneath the iconic Harbor Bridge in Sydney, Australia. With a desire for high-end finishes and a connection to their dressing room, the client’s requirements were a tall order in a fairly small space.

The biggest obstacle was the fact that the space had no windows so it was necessary to achieve a bright look through artificial light and a sliding glass wall system to let light from the bedroom enter the space. Recessed light is hidden above the mirrors and below the floating vanity.

Another requirement was the use of wood floors to connect to the dressing room. They chose an engineered oak floor due to its lack of expansion which you’d normally find in traditional wood floors.

Another must was a freestanding bathtub and double sinks, a huge feat for such a tight space. A floating wall-hung vanity was installed to give the feeling of more space and the simple unit is complemented with Gessi Goccia fixtures and oversized vessel basins. The sleek tub is made by Antonio Lupi.

I love how when you’re looking down the hallway through the closed glass doors that you see beautiful curved lines from the faucets to the mirrors, to the sinks.

We all know how horrible grout is to clean and the homeowners decided to have a bathroom without any grout at all (they are geniuses). Instead the walls are covered in white Corian giving the space a seamless look.

How amazing is that teardrop-like tub spout hanging down from the ceiling?

An Antonio Lupi Corian shower base system was installed with an integrated shower screen to create a watertight environment.
