A clear glass divider controls the shower splash

Elegant yet simple, the screen for this shower is a single sheet of tempered glass. Seattle architects Miller/Hull designed it into Randy Mercy's house in Lake Marcel, Washington--the winner of an ALA--Sunset Western Home Honor Award.

Nearly 4 feet wide, the glass keeps uninterrupted the expanse of paneling and tile through the tight bath. It sits in grooves in the wood on each side, and on a bead of sealant along the tile ledge. Several coats of marine-grade penetrating teak oil were applied with wet-dry sandpaper to protect the enclosure walls.
