Barrier-free Bathroom for the Generation born before 1950. Space for active strength of body and mind. The experience of bathing in the shimmering water of a lake on a spring morning is transferred to a bathroom designed for generation above 60. This energizing space full of light is inspired by the atmosphere of impressionist paintings. The character of Monet’s lakes and ponds and Degas’ ballet studios is embedded into the mosaic tile wall. One curved wall encloses bathroom space, as a modern interpretation of dressing screen. Its texture and color compliment the ageing skin, making freckles, wrinkles and imperfections look normal and natural. A single wooden bar for support goes along the wall. Chosen materials and layout provide safe environment and natural feeling, evoking pleasant memories.
