The unique concept of a male powder room @ the Four Seasons Hotel & Residences

DESCRIPTION
from the architects' statement

"In this almost 11,000 square feet of raw space, we were tasked with creating his and her separate powder room to express owners’ individual styles. The design brief called for the overall residence to be “visually exciting” and “surprising”. His “powder room’ was not going to be any different.

Because powder rooms aren’t typically designed for a man, we opted for a very masculine concept – that of a classic black tuxedo with a peek-a-boo of white. A droplet shaped sink that felt delicate much like a tuxedo shirt, became the centerpiece. This sink sat on top of a swirled marble floor, specifically designed to keep the integrity of the veins so as to make the floor look seamless. The swirls in the stone whisk the guest into a pleasant ‘Alice in wonderland’ feeling that forced you to engage in the experience of the room. In spite of the multitude of materials and patterns used, not one is overpowering the other. They balance one another. Other key elements contributing to the whimsical experience, are the black marble walls and carved out circles of silver leaf that formed a super pattern allowing the chrome ceiling mounted faucet to shine as a jewel piece. The water coming from the ceiling into the delicate white droplet sink engaged the senses.

Powder rooms are understood to be dramatic and most times under lit. We created tiered lighting so that there was ample light to see while still maintaining the ‘mood’ light. To hide the p-trap, the team devised a plan to create a frost that started from the floor and dissipated as it went up. This created a camouflage to hide the plumbing while keeping the mirror."
