Sander used the same tile on the walls and floor to create a continuity and flow in the bathroom. This allows the eye to take in the space as a whole, instead of seeing "wall" or "floor" as defined by different tile choices. This same philosophy is applied in other applications throughout the house. With the absence of traditional doors and interior walls, Sander's house relies on hospital track and curtains made out of inexpensive parachute nylon to section off spaces as needed. The curtains can be moved around easily to define a room or hide storage/functional elements, yet always provide a sense of flow and softness.
