This plan view demonstrates the integration of wet and dry bathing environments with basement bathroom access. Occupying just a 9' x 12' space, this modest dual-room layout provides for amazing bathing experiences.
Wet and Dry Rooms
This plan view narrows in on the two distinct bathing environments...wet and dry. Separated by an all-glass door, the brilliance of this orientation is in the multitude of hot-to-cold wellness experiences involving steam, sauna, immersion, fall and rain bathing. Introduce the effects of aroma, chroma and sound, and the experiences are both spectacular and boundless.
Bathroom Wall Dissolve
With the front wall (bathroom adjoining wall) dissolved, this first of five elevation views showcases the versatility of white light within the environments. Purposefully positioned for relaxing dry room reading and wet room showering, these LED fixtures are dimmable for mood and desired intensity.
Chroma Bathing I
Adding mood or colored lighting with the touch of a button transforms the wet room blue and the dry room orange. Each environment benefits from independent ceiling RGB LED lighting systems enabling a myriad of chroma bathing scenes.
Chroma Bathing II
Notice the perimeter color lighting to illuminate the flooring and indicate areas of importance. Also lit is the immersion bath's chroma bathing system which casts its shine on nearby surfaces. Initiating these multi-color lower-level lighting systems can set a calming mood should ceiling luminaries be dimmed or even off.
Initiate the illuminated waterfall for ambiance or fall bathing. Gallons of shimmering water massage your head, neck and back or just provide for a natural source of calm. Basking in sauna bathing warmth, the faint echo of flowing water is captivating, and the cascading light emanating from the fall builds anticipation for an invigorating series of wet room cool-down experiences.
Wet Room Splendor
Relaxing on the wet room bench, the gentle whisper of warm billowing steam provides the perfect medium to introduce eucalyptus or lavender and sets the stage for countless chroma bathing experiences. Choose from your five preferred aromas, color-wash the room with your favorite hue, fine-tune the soothing churn of your waterfall, initiate your favorite bathing sounds, select a falling mist or steady downpour and then choose a cool immersing plunge or invigorating bucket drenching for an extended sensory vacation.
Essential to the wet room is the variable-flow fiber optic waterfall which illuminates to match your bathing scene or slowly fades through its pre-programmed color pallet for amazing chroma bathing effects. Fall bathing involves hiding behind, splashing in, gazing at and massaging by a waterfall and is a childhood bathing dream that can now be realized. For its aesthetics, sounds, movements and colors, fallbathing is an awe-inspiring innovation; however, it is the physical interaction with the bather that makes it a true bathing wonder.
Bask in the sauna-warm shade of the dry room upper-bench while gazing into the orange glow of RGB colored lighting. Wall-mounted backrests are slanted for comfort and back-wall speakers are pivoted upward to spread your favorite sounds. Splash the sauna heater rocks with eucalyptus-blended water while the humidity roars and wellness awaits you.
This upper bench perspective showcases the many fixtures that bring the wet environment to life. The ceiling presents a vent, the immersion bath fill, varied overhead sprays, color and white lights, and speakers. The walls boast a lighted waterfall, wall-mounted sprays, a hand spray, a steam outlet, a fog-free mirror, lighted wall accessory niches, a bucket fill, perimeter lighting, and various intuitive controls to explore your personal bathing preferences.
This scene from the immersion bath shares an expressive display of the dry environment. The common glass wall welcomes the earthy wood ambiance flush with vitality red lighting as you soak chin-deep in your favorite bathing temperature, aroma and color. Reinvent the mood with a fine mist and your favorite sounds flowing from above, or rev up the immersion bath jets and aroma bubbler to pinpoint aches and lose yourself in the aromatic splendor.
Wet Room Bench
Highlighted by perimeter lighting, this purposeful wet room bench facilitates immersion bath entry, sit-down showers and provides for relaxation during rain bathing, steam bathing and drenching experiences. The adjacent wall-mounted controls regulate water temperature and volume for overhead mist and fog along with the drench bucket and immersion bath fill-spouts. When seated here, one can enjoy the perfect steam experience while blanketed in a cool mist, warm steady fog or spectacularly refreshing drenching.
Wet Room Shower Wall
This perspective from the immersion bath captures the shower wall elegance. Situated for the ultimate stand-up shower experience; ceiling, overhead wall, hand and wall sprays provide for independent or simultaneous shower experiences. Inspired by nature, each spray is gracious in size, provides an adjustable and soothing water stream and pivots for your personal liking. Adorned by a fog-free mirror and lighted bookend accessory niches, the shower wall delivers the fitting pampered transition back into the real-world.
Wet and Dry Room Harmony
Just the sound of the waterfall while soaking beneath its glow and the radiance of the wet room perimeter lighting is all you need to restore and renew. Buoyancy in 98 degree water blurs where your skin stops and where the water starts as you float limitless in mind and body. You drift gently beneath the fall as stress melts under the scented cascading water. The reassuring fiery glow of the dry room perimeter lighting assures you that a sauna-warmed towel and bench await you in the cedar-scented sanctuary - perfect for drying off in preparation for reentry into everyday living.
Exploring personal and social bathing through the creation of experiences that inspire wellness is the motivation for such an environment. We believe there are combinations of aromas, temperatures, water textures, color schemes, sounds, atmospheres and relationships that are so moving, that a desire to transcend past bathing experiences brings an uncommon vibrance to everyday living. Energy, mental-clarity and well-being will abound as you unknowingly pursue the science of bathing.
