After spotting a similar setup in Cambodia's One Hotel and hearing lots of recent opinions on the prevalence of bathtubs in bedrooms, we're labeling the combination bed/bath a full-blown trend — particularly in the world of boutique hotels. Designed by Berlin-based GRAFT Architects, these combination bedrooms/bathrooms are supported by a curvilinear platform. Bathroom counters are composed of slate and wood, and the beds themselves are a simple mattress with spare white sheets and pillows.
While it's certainly an elegant and space-saving design, the tub/sink/bed clearly isn't designed for people who prefer to keep functional zones more clearly delineated. What do you think? Is this a brilliant solution for small spaces or an uncomfortably close pairing?
