Penthouse refurbishment in London’s Financial District.Contemporary Bathroom, London
This bathroom, designed by interior architect Thomas Griem, enjoys a spectacular view over the city of London. Griem’s idea for the interior design was based on the concept of photography inspired by the views over the city. He has used the architecture of the windows to frame these vistas with breathtaking effect.
This is particularly so in the master bathroom where a full-height window provides a panoramic view over the rooftops of the City. the capacious free standing bathtub by Clearwater Baths is strategically placed under the picture window. “When you are sitting in the bath, you are essentially a part of the cityscape” says Thomas. “It weighs 300 kilograms and it took six men to carry it up seven floors!”.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Audio-visual technology “If I were to choose one item of bathroom tech for my own home, it would be a TV at the foot of my bath,” Justine says. “I can spend hours in the bath, between mud masks and hair masks, so a TV is a really lovely addition to me.“My husband, on the other hand, would rather listen to music in the shower, making a TV that can do both the perfect solution for families like ours,” she says. “The TVs we favour are mirror finish, so they look fab in a scheme.”You might also like What are the 9 Golden Rules of Bathroom Design?

Work with the room’s best featuresThe picture window in this bathroom offers a vast view over London, so it would be distracting if the space were kitted out with bright colours or ornate sanitaryware. In cases like this, it’s much better to go minimal and let the view take centre stage.
No exception to the rest of the apartment, the views from the en suite master bathroom are spectacular. ‘I designed the layout of the apartment, and specifically wanted to have a full-length window in here,’ says Thomas. To keep it clean and sleek, he chose light porcelain tiles for the walls, a light brown marble for the floor and a little bit of oak in the cabinet. There’s also a built-in TV to make it even more indulgent.Check out 10 baths with amazing views
