  In the master bath of a sophisticated Cape Town penthouse, sandblasted windows let in light while retaining privacy. The tub is from Dado, the vanity and stool are from Ligne Roset, and the Big Bang light is from Foscarini. Photo by Elsa Young.  Photo by Elsa Young.

  In the bathroom and throughout his Crown Heights apartment, Ryan kept lines as pure as possible by designing built-in storage alcoves. The cutout space in the white cabinet does double duty as a door pull and a cubby for frequently used items. Photo by Gile Ashford.  Photo by Gile Ashford.

  In the bathroom of a Portland backyard retreat, a thin pane of glass separates the shower; an Aquaplane sink by Lacava hovers above a built-in vanity illuminated by a lean Adelphi light by Oxygen Lighting; and blue-green glass penny tiles by Terra Verre decorate the floor. The absence of a door, combined with windows on two sides, makes the bathroom feel like a continuation of the overall space. Photo by Lincoln Barbour.  Photo by Lincoln Barbour.

  For Felix Claus, a 1930s rental apartment is more than an idyllic pied-à-terre—it’s an architectural gem that requires reverence and careful tending. The bathroom is painted a vibrant emerald green. Photo by Hotze Eisma.

  Dutch designer Piet Boon's first major multi-residential project in the US arrives at 404 Park Avenue South. Each bathroom in Huys is decked out in Chambolle stone slab, from flooring to countertop to wall tiles. Piet Boon-designed lighting illuminates a Duravit sink, Dornbracht fixtures in matte platinum, and a Kaldewei soaking tub. The floors are equipped with radiant heating by NuHeat.
