Upton Architecture was tasked with renovating a nondescript bath within a beautiful heavy timber master suite. The original drywall partitions dividing the master bath from the bedroom concealed some of the heavy timber construction, blocked the skylight and narrowed down the entry to the room.
We provided a design to accentuate the heavy structural details without detracting from the original structure.
Rather than trying to match the timbers we contrasted the wood structure with steel and used bolted connections to reflect the wooden pegs of the timber frame. The new design compliments the unique construction while giving the space a new level of sophistication.
