A few years ago, Sophie's dad, L.A. architect David Hertz, realized that his growing family was quickly turning their contemporary Malaysian home into a very crowded house–particularly when it came to bathrooms.
So Dad decided that the best way to keep the family peace was to build daughter Sophie a space of her own.
The all-in-one, unique design of the vanity top uses a modern wall-mount faucet and a low-volume basin. Malaysian hardwood drawers underneath the sink and countertop lend to the contemporary look and provide ample storage space.
Beneath the expansive skylights sits a Syndecrete
shower stall that Sophie can call her own. She explains why she loves her new bathroom so much: "In the mornings, when I come in here, it's really sunny." But her absolute favorite part of the room is the fact she no longer has to share a bathroom with her pesky little brothers.
No matter where you are in the bathroom you can look up and get a beautiful view–the skylights stretch the length of the room. The bathroom looks as cool from the outside as it does from the inside. It is located on the second floor, suspended above the patio walkway, and from the outside it doesn't looks more like a little bridge than a bathroom.
