Project: 55 Avenue C, New York Client: Mike Long Architect in charge: Nicolò Lewanski Photography: Montse Zamorano
A tiny bathroom renovation project showing the importance of constraints in design. Tadelakt - a kind of Moroccan stucco - was used as the main material for both floor and walls making the space watertight. A curved wooden door replaced the curtain, marking a positive presence of the entrance into the main space while also fully enclosing the bathroom. A column is used to both house the water tank and host the shower controls, surpassing the obvious sequence of the three elements in line when considering a narrow bathroom. Ultimately, part of the sink bowl manifests itself out of the vanity to allow for additional leg space while also manifesting form.
