Handsome light box for the bathroom.

Spanning wall to wall in a narrow guest bathroom, this open-topped box masks two double-bulb incandescent fixtures, diffusing light from them and a clerestory window above. Anchored at the back and sides, the 54-1/2-inch-long frame projects 11-1/2 inches over the sink.

Built of clear hemlock 1-by-6, the simple box has a plastic grid--often used below fluorescent lights--mounted flush with the bottom edge. The grid fits in a 1/2-inch-wide, 1/2-inch-deep groove rabbeted along the inside face of the frame. Short screws run up through plastic squares glued to the top edges of the grid, securing it to the frame.

Oakland architect Lewis diSibio designed and built the unit.
