“It’s really only the use of the marble as a material that echoes our early ideas of a hammam. But, just as it did for the Ottomans, it feels right for our bathroom. It is clean, luxurious and yet functional.” Homeowners
Top-to-toe marble in such a relatively small space could have looked over the top, but the clever choice of colours – using a rich colour to highlight parts of the floor and around the door frames with a more subdued white with grey on the walls and remainder of the floor – creates a striking but not overwhelming aesthetic. The combination of the colours in the marble connects a simple, clean and modern shape with the inspiration of the hammam. It is functional yet luxurious.
“The challenge was how to fit the homeowners vision into a 5.7m by 3m modern box without it looking over- ornate. The result was, in design terms, quite a bit simpler than a typical hammam but the stone and the colour, for us, captured the spirit of the inspiration.” Jon Mitchell, Fox Marble Plc
