Lap of Luxury

Case Architects & Remodelers turns a disjointed master bath into a chic sanctuary

After a couple purchased a home in Rockville, they tapped Case Architects & Remodelers to overhaul its outdated kitchen and master bath. The latter was beset with a shower the size of a phone booth and a sunken tub requiring acrobatic entry and exit. On the plus side, the existing footprint gave designers April Case Underwood and Elena Eskandari plenty of room for a redesign. The duo created a shower for two, complete with bench and access from two sides. A glass frame and partial wall (with a niche to store shampoo) separates the shower and a floating vessel tub. They selected gray porcelain flooring and marble-look wall tile, punching things up with a wall mosaic in the shower. “We also added some bling with hardware and lighting,” says Eskandari, pointing out the chandelier hung with crystals. Dual sinks top the corner vanities to the left of the tub; a WC is tucked away to the right. The finished project, says Underwood, invites the owners to linger in “a relaxing oasis in their home.”
