Reflecting Peaks View Residence’s emphasis on public spaces, the house’s private rooms are modestly scaled and straightforward in layout—qualities architect Eric Logan used to highlight the virtue of simplicity. The master bath devotes its outside wall to a tub-and-shower bay, with the tub’s tiled deck becoming a bench where it enters the shower enclosure. A tiled soffit above marks where the bay projects from the body of the house. Floating along the opposite wall is a sapele vanity topped with a composite counter of concrete and recycled glass. A separate toilet compartment makes for a clutter-free bathing zone.
Maximizing space is even more important in the children’s bath. As in the master, the bathing area is defined by ceramic tile in a running bond pattern. The transparent shower surround occupies little apparent space, virtually disappearing against the darker tile. The window is stained to match the cabinet “to complement the millwork but also to limit the number of materials,” Logan says. The window’s mountain view expands the bath’s visual scope to the scale of miles.
