“Like quite a few residences in San Francisco, it is a multi-dwelling unit, and my clients—a few who function in resourceful industries, and their young son—own the ground flooring and stroll-out basement amount, which is where by the bathroom is positioned,” says Laura Hur, founder of Lorla Studio. The a few-tale Edwardian-design and style property was crafted in 1908 and wanted some refreshing.

The in advance of: “While the layout of the toilet stayed the exact same, every little thing else adjusted!” Laura says. “We stripped the area down to the studs, but did not shift any partitions. Prior to the renovation, this guest lavatory found on the walkout basement level felt like a cave. It has no window or pure mild and small ceilings. All of the fixtures and supplies had been dated, and the house was a little bit operate-down.”
The inspiration: “We desired to design and style a lavatory that felt genuinely distinctive and playful, but also desired it to provide a sense of serene,” Laura claims. “To do this, we drew materials and colour inspiration from the town of San Francisco, with all its funky architecture, bold tones, interesting components, and abundance of nature. At the exact same time, our materials application was encouraged by the thoroughly clean strains and minimalist aesthetic located in Scandinavian design. We generally realized this marriage by using daring materials (like terrazzo) in a modern-day way—exaggerated baseboard, floating shelves, and so forth. Simply because the room is rather compact with lower ceilings, we desired to keep the selection of components to a minimum, when nonetheless having a massive influence.”
