Green, but not obviously green! -

The “health resort at home” was a priority. Aficionados of natural elements as well as recycling enthusiasts, the couple desired materials evoking the outdoors; and a hidden system to recycle gray water.

Inside a tiled alcove above the long vanity sits an immense mirror. The gray-washed bamboo of the vanity also covers the large deck with the bath tub, where they both sit or bathe at the same time. Below the tub deck, a water pump feeds the gray water to the garden. 

A natural tapestry of gray pebble rocks on the wall announces a spa-like backdrop above the bathtub. This is now “the health resort of their own”: a place where the environmentalists can relax, wash away urban dust and restore themselves -and their environment.
