Multipurpose bathroom

What is the inspiration for your design?
I wanted to design a bathroom which can hold multipurpose activities at the same time, that it helps to create an overall positive environment at home for all family members. Instead of bringing the nature to the interior space ,I brought the interior(bathroom) out to the nature , to make the users more comfortable in terms of functionality and appearance. when compared to the apartments, deminished spaces reduce the functionality of each space especially the bathroom.so this design holds the purpose of the common wash area, the dressing area, apart from a normal bathroom space.

How does the design fulfill the need of the target users?
The target users are the family of six members including parents , grand parents and the two kids of age 5 to 10.The space can designed by considering these users,so that the kids can reach the height of items like towels,tissues etc. The sitting area in the shower space brings the user for more relaxation and which helps to connect the user to the nature without any interference. Seating area is also provided in the common wash area which helps the user to sit and makeup act as a dressing unit.

How does the design fulfill the design challenge?
The washroom in a house is not just used by the members of the house but also by guests, thus this space look more presentable and its well connected to the nature also.

How does the choice of products contribute to the purpose of the design?
The products are selected based on the functionality and look. Which helps to keep the design more interesting.
