I met architect Branka Knezevic at the AIA home tours a while back. When she was contracted to remodel an outdated bathroom in a ranch home, she promised me a big reveal with before and after photos. For the last few weeks she has strung me along with “the bathroom is almost finished.” Now, it is finally finished and the result was definitely worth the wait!

The owner of the home wanted a bathroom that had a sleek and modern design. Branka came up with an ambitious plan to incorporate both a freestanding tub and a rather large glass-enclosed shower in a 125 square foot bathroom. All the while, the bathroom still had to feel spacious.

The linear wall hanging cabinet stretches the length of the bathroom between the tub and the shower. Its extra long length provides ample storage to minimize the need for any other storage furniture. The large, uncovered windows and large mirror also help open up the space and give the bathroom the illusion of being larger than its actual square footage.
