Penthouse refurbishment in London’s Financial District.
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:
Work with the room’s best featuresThe picture window in this bathroom offers a vast view over London in the UK, so it would be distracting if the space were kitted out with bright colours or ornate fixtures. In cases like this, it’s much better to go minimal and let the view take centre stage.
6. Waterproof televisionsWaterproof LED televisions with a high-definition touchscreen and frameless designs are available to fit into the bathroom seamlessly. They usually feature waterproof speakers, which adds to the acoustic enjoyment. Place them across from the toilet seat, tub or shower for easier viewing access.Tip: Get a TV with waterproof rating of at least IP 65 that resists not just splashes, but even direct inputs of water.Read more: 5 Trending Faucet Types15 Outstanding Bathroom Lighting IdeasTell us: Which of these bathroom technologies do you want in yours?
