Signature Kitchen and Baths named Soaring Wings its 2010 Bath of the year.
“This new residence, called Soaring Wings, is home to a husband and wife with two young children. Their wish for the dwelling was that it be a peaceful, zen-like residence that offered ample space to relax and connect with the outdoors. The homeowners also desired to carry that aesthetic through to this bathroom, where they also wanted separate his and her vanities, an open floor plan, and space that boasts easy flow.
With a very open connection to the master bedroom—there are no doors—Winn Wittman, AIA, of Winn Wittman Architecture achieved separation by situating the closets between the bathroom and bedroom. The closets are clad in white glass panels, and the walls, which don’t meet the ceiling, leave an intended gap of open space at the top. This design makes the room feel large while creating some privacy.
The symmetrical arrangement focuses one’s attention on a large granite tub weighing 3,200 pounds. Materials in the bathroom include fir cabinetry, Caeserstone countertops, a Black Galaxy granite floor, and clear glass tile in the steam shower. Looking out form the bathroom, one views a private courtyard where river rocks further the zen-inspired design. These river rocks surround the tub inside, blurring the distinction between the exterior and interior.”
