Retreat for Two

NKBA Awards • BATH—Third Place

Retreat for Two A Potomac, Maryland, couple with an outmoded master bath hired CARNEMARK to overhaul the problematic space. The goal was to create a new layout that would make it easier for the couple to be in the bathroom at the same time without “bumping elbows and fighting for storage,” says principal Jonas Carnemark. “They longed for a clean, contemporary bath where they could coexist in comfort.”

Carnemark’s design reconfigured the space for better function and flow. A Jacuzzi tub with a precarious stepped entry was replaced by one with an extra-deep ledge for safety. The path extends into a bench with storage under it and terminates in a glass-enclosed shower that boasts hand sprays and thermostatic controls.

The enclosed W.C. was moved closer to the bedroom for convenience. A sleek vanity from SieMatic is paired with Caesarstone counters, which also top the bench and tub ledge. Large-format ceramic-tile floors and walls are offset by decorative mosaic tile accents. The floor is heated for comfort.
