High-Rise Home COLETTE RODON HORNOF Vesta, Chicago, IL High style in a high rise was the objective for this project, designed by Colette Rodon Hornof of Vesta. The 900-sq.-ft. master suite makeover was designed to make the most of the space and its stunning views of the city of Chicago. The original space consisted of two awkward his-and-hers bathrooms and closets, and the task at hand was to convert that space into a serene, spa-like bath and upscale walk-in closet. The area posed several challenges for Hornof, including incorporating a new tub and larger shower into an existing bathroom layout, and providing an open feel in the bath of a high-rise building while still allowing for privacy. The original west side bathroom was used as the base for the new bath. A step up into the room was added to allow for the relocation of most of the plumbing needs. The new Aquia II toilet from TOTO was placed in the toilet's original location, with a tall cabinet added to visually close it off from the rest of the space. Using the drain and water lines from the original tub and shower allowed for a sleek double-sink design, with a Leicht Avance European white channel handle vanity. The vanity is topped with a Diresco Anticato in Pure White, with Duravit Starck III sinks and Dornbracht IMO faucets. Dornbracht IMO bath accessories are also featured throughout the space. Robern M Series medicine cabinets provide lighting and addi- tional storage and are set against a backdrop of Artistic Tile's Opera Glass Collection of mosaics, which are also featured on the shower wall. By raising the floor, the new shower was able to be located at the old closet location, with a tub as a feature at the window wall. A glass enclosure separates the two areas, with the Nouveau tub from Hastings Tile & Bath and Hansgrohe Axor Citterio tub faucet placed at the window to take advantage of the stunning view. The shower features a plumbing column that includes the Dornbracht showerhead and faucet. Modern Avorio tile on the tub/shower wall finishes the look. Photos: Alan Shortall BRONZE August 2019 • 63
