A new open plan allows downtown views from a soaking tub and walk-in shower at the back of the loft. Minimalist geometry draws focus to the natural material palate: walnut grain cabinets, stucco walls, concrete countertops with integral sinks, exposed structural concrete columns and ceiling. A few favorite details include a custom recessed stepping stool to get into the tub, built-in vanity lights, integrated supply and return air vents at walnut cabinetry, plateless outlet + switches at the sink, and metal picture rail crown trim.
