A RENOVATED LOFT IN SOHO

Confronted with an historic loft in New York's SoHo district in need of an update, architects Bronwyn Breitner and Luigi Ciaccia executed a gut renovation to introduce more natural light throughout the interior while honoring the original character of the former industrial space. White Thassos floor and wall tile from thassos.com lines the bathroom surfaces. The vanity is custom, the sink and shower faucets are from Lacava, and the sink is Decolav. Photo by Frank Oudeman.

A SUSTAINABLE MID-CENTURY BEACH HOUSE

Thanks to a disciplined devotion to mid-century principles of design, a curator’s bachelor pad in the Hamptons is reborn. In the bathroom, architect Nick Martin selected Heath Ceramics Conclave Diamond tile in citrus green for the glass-enclosed Kohler tub, which is outfitted with nickel Kallista fixtures. A matching toilet by Kohler in the color Cashmere blends with the custom-fabricated concrete sink by Get Real Surfaces. Photo by Patrick Bernard.

SPACE SAVING RENOVATION IN BROOKLYN

A renovation in Brooklyn proves that the secret to living in compact quarters lies in the details. In the bathroom and throughout the apartment, architect Philip 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.

SALVAGED WOOD RENOVATION IN PORTLAND

Custom woodwork and an open interior define a 520-square-foot backyard retreat for a busy family. In the bathroom, 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.

AN ANGULAR FUTURISTIC HOUSE IN GEORGIA

The Decatur, Georgia, residence belonging to two book authors is an angular exercise in creating a dynamic structure. "It has energy and does not feel heavy or is static," says architect Staffan Svenson of Atlanta-based firm Dencity Design. Inside, Svenson divided the house into seven levels and introduced a vibrant color palette and rich material program at the residents' request. The bathroom features Chromtech tile, a Toto toilet, Kohler vanity, and powder-coated steel countertop.
