SKIBIAK Residence,
Washington, DC

This Master Bedroom Suite was created to accommodate the Master Bedroom in this midtown classic brick row home. An existing hallway and two closets off the Master Bedroom were transformed into a luxurious travertine clad contemporary bathroom with floor to ceiling corner glassed shower enclosure, leaving one large walk-in closet with a concealed entrance door from the bedroom. The addition of a skylight and halogen lighting over the pedestal sink and a borderless mirror stretching up behind the sink into the skylight area illuminates this corner and reflects natural light back into the bedroom through the restored transom lite over the bedroom-bathroom door. A new generous medicine cabinet was created in the wall to the right of the sink, enclosed with flush double doors on pivot hinges, glass shelves, and sleek minimal stainless steel pulls. The warmth of the travertine brings out the warmth of the restored wood doors and moldings, perfectly melding the old with the new.
