The builder wanted a proper bathroom in the old barn that was converted into housing, says interior architect MNIL, master of building protection Kirsti Skulberg.
In the past, she has refurbished a rural house in Oslo and a modern residence in Kongsberg.
Difficult Small Room
Her goal was to create a good bathroom out of a difficult starting point.
Here the area in the room was 5.5 x 2.1 meters.
Organic under the slope
The solution was to think organic, says Bonytt’s interior designer. no.
And her ambition was not modest; Skulberg would create comfortable passages all over the place in this small room, without the room being felt as cramped.
Glass Basic building block
– Using glass building stone, which in itself is a beautifully transparent material was natural to use in partitions this project, “said the expert.. In addition, these brick walls had to be designed so that they seemed natural against the bathe slope.
Escaped was best
It was known that escalators of the glass wall up against the ceiling worked excellent. These unique walls are also hit by solid teak posts.
Also, drawers, wash basin plates and panels that are striking the bath are of teak; a hard material that can withstand a damp environment.
Highly beneath the cove floats a two hundred year old wooden beech.
Supplied with steel
The curved details of stainless steel, acid-proof steel, both along the bath walls and the washbasin. These were made to the site of the smiths Viggo Stensrud and Egil Jensen.
Woodworkers in oiled oak and white pigmented wages also have skilled craftsmen taken care of.
Delicious with pay
– I used pay because this wood material is clean in the structure, has little life in it and is also smooth and stable, Skulberg expands.
So travertine and nightlight
Otherwise, the room is characterized by classic gray-gray travertine tiles. The special materiality, the texture of these tile surfaces, is extraordinary when the night lighting in the roof over the walls automatically takes action in the evening.
Blur on the floor
Spotlight located 15cm up on the wall gives an extra discreet, blurred light down the floor.
While these lighting features are practical for orientation in the room during the night, it also gives a very special, generally-called, rather romantic-atmosphere in the room, without the need to cost so much to install, “says the interior designer.
Inspired by the boat culture
Both in shape, functions and material use, this bathroom reminds us of elements that we often see in the boat culture. This helps create an authentic, yet equally delicate atmosphere in the old barn.
