Walls of glass block give daylight to this bathroom.
Oakland architect William Remick put a floor-to-ceiling window, 4 by 7 feet, along one wall of a combination shower and steam room. In this section, tall sliding glass doors isolate the steam from the rest of the bath. Square white tiles in the shower and on the floor of the bath echo the grid pattern of the 6-inch-square glass blocks.
The second window wall curves away from the bath and butts into an adjacent wing of the house. The quarter-round pop-out let Remick extend the bathroom counter an additional 2 feet and created a pocket deep enough for standing.
Since the bath would serve as a changing room for swimmers and be a convenience for those relaxing on the patio, Remick put an exterior door, flanked by a set of small-paned windows, between the glass-block sections.
Owners are Connie and Ralph Williams of Orinda, California.
