Going Green in Style

Our dream is to see every client end up with a gorgeous space of this caliber.  This master bathroom renovation by Phoenix architect Greg Seitz incorporates recycled glass mosaics into his contemporary design.


Unique details of this project include a curbless shower pan…
The unobstructed effect makes this sizable bathroom feel even roomier.
A shower niche extends nearly from floor to ceiling with 3 inset glass shelves.
The niche virtually disappears into the background, maintaining clean aesthetics of Greg’s design.
Shower walls were recessed such that the finished tile surface matches the plane of the drywall,
eliminating bulky trim pieces.
The Materials Palette:

Shower Walls: Sonoma Tile ‘Vihara’ 1 x 4 Offset glass mosaics, Jade Irid. (70% post consumer recycled glass )
Shower Floor: Cepac “Basket-Weave” in Mountain Meadow
Main Floor: 18″ x 18″ “Empress” limestone

*All tile available from Facings of America


After Demo and substrate preparation:

Here’s a sneak peek into Luke’s exacting substrate preparation for the shower, including a dropped pan to achieve the curbless shower and a new square drain assembly that modulates with the floor tile.

The 5′ tall custom built shower niche is scaled to enhance the shower design, but sized to modulate with the wall tile, minimizing unsightly cuts.  As mentioned above, these floated shower walls are recessed such that the surface of the tile matches the finished drywall surface.  No Trim  required!!!!  These details differentiate fine craftsmanship from ordinary tile installation.  And below, a final detail…look closely for linear veining in this limestone floor tile – Luke installed it uni-directionally, subtly mimicking the texture and layout of these recycled glass mosaics by Sonoma Tilemakers.
