Bathroom, powder room, comfort station—no matter the name you fancy, these serene spaces from the Dwell community have been designed to soothe. Here are our editor's top picks of the week.
Architect: FGR Architects, Location: Ascot Vale, Victoria, Australia
From the project uploader: "The bathrooms elegantly complement the home with signature black tapware, marble benchtops, and round basins. Rendered concrete makes up the walls together with offset glass and custom steel shelves, providing a sleek, simple look."
Architect: Olson Kundig, Location: Ketchum, Idaho
From the architect: "The outdoors is welcomed in at nearly every turn, with expansive windows and wide-swinging doors that celebrate the interior/exterior connection. The master bath features an indoor/outdoor stone shower with Montana moss rock."
Architect: Hoogland Architecture, Location: Blue Diamond, Nevada
From the architect: "Each of the principal spaces in the home needed to capture at least one primary view. Simplified programmatically and architecturally into functional volumes, each of the cubes frame one of the primary views, capture pieces of secondary views, and provide privacy from neighboring properties, hikers, mountain bikers, and the occasional wild burro or coyote. A limited palette of materials and a minimal aesthetic are fitting to the stark, weathered, Mojave Desert setting."
Architect: Cousins & Cousins, Location: England, United Kingdom
From the project uploader: "At [the] house, a fine line is drawn between privacy and openness. The design manipulates scale and form to give a sense of calm throughout whilst taking you on a journey—from the tactile intimacy of its material detail through to the generous volumes and light of its living spaces."
