Heavenly Baths

Three spa-like spaces—a light-filled minimalist’s dream; a not-so-secret escape; and a breathtaking His and Hers—that spilleth over with luxury

(page 1 of 5)

1 Calm, Cool,
and Collected

The Concept: Bob and Karen Ranquist of Ranquist Home Builders teamed up with architect Mark Peters of Studio Dwell (their go-to guy for all of the firm’s residential projects, including, naturally, their own Bucktown home) to create a peaceful and minimalist master bath. The idea, according to Peters, was to create a space that felt larger than it actually is and to maximize the natural light offered by a skylight above the shower and a window near the tub.

The 14-by-20-foot space is partitioned by a seven-foot-tall limestone-tiled “screen” (1) that Peters ended three feet below the ceiling so natural light could pass over it.

The screen also contains plumbing for  two Duravit wall-mounted sinks (2) and a shower on the opposite side. Karen loves the two Robern medicine cabinets (3) because they’re mirrored on the inside and contain electrical outlets.

A frosted glass wall (4) at one end of the shower creates yet another plane (in addition to the mirrors) that can be lit up by the sun.
