The owners of this San Diego, CA home are a Balinese couple with two young children. The couple wished to expand the existing bathroom into a larger primary bath where the entire family would enjoy a spa-like experience in what would feel like a traditional Balinese outdoor shower. To be authentic, designer and architect Svetlana Summers used materials typical for this style, such as concrete-look Entropia Greige tile from Dom Ceramiche, Island Stone Cobbles Mosaic Stone in Sterling Gray and natural wood pieces.

The 59″ round Brianza freestanding stone tub from The Interior Gallery served not only as the main focal point and inspiration for the entire project but also as a major challenge – it was too large and heavy to be carried up the stairs to the second floor. To solve this issue, a large construction crane was hired to lift it high above and bring it down through the new skylight.

Additional elements of the design include Brizo Litze brass fittings and a Toto Neorest toilet in Cotton. A wall-hung vanity topped with a Cambria Quartz Winterbourne countertop and integrated sink create a unique, modern and open space.

The clients asked that the bathroom be designed without the need for glass enclosures, so the 154-sq.-ft. space features three separate areas, divided by arched door openings, which solve any problems of excess moisture or splash.
