The National Kitchen and Bathroom Association’s annual design competition is where Davinia Sutton/Sam Lawrence’s creative work practice—concerned with detail, their choice of high standard materials—and Terranova Tiling’s artisan tile installation, attentive to the designer’s vision and the fit and finish, combine to shine like gold. This Bathroom Design of the Year rewards providing industry direction and leadership by example. Terranova tiling takes pride in their work and very happy to have been recognised as part of the team that made this modern, natural stone sanctuary the three time winner for Davinia Sutton and Sam Lawrence in 2015.
The attention to detail in this bathroom is impressive—right down to the way the handle has been formed as part of the glass shower door. It’s a simple palette with subtle but contrasting colour. And simple ideas have been developed and followed through. The lighting is particularly well planned.
