Before Beard’s redesign, the second-floor
aster bath was crammed under the eaves of
the house, so that an adult couldn’t stand up
straight in much of the space. It was adjacent to
a children’s bath, a laundry, and storage space.
All the rooms were small, dark, and inefficient.
“Since the kids’ bedrooms were at the other end
of the house,” says Beard, “it made sense to relocate this children’s bath closer to them.” The
architect then gutted the space in order to create a single 12-foot-by-14-foot room. He raised
the roof by adding a dormer, which he punctuated with two-over-two casement windows
that, along with a new skylight, brought much-needed daylight into the now open and airy
space. At the same time, Beard carefully infused
an intimate sensibility by using partial walls to
compartmentalize the room by function.
“I knew the clients wanted everything to be
height, light, and a tub with a view were at the
top of the clients’ wish list. Architect Thomas S.
Beard made all that possible by adding a dormer
that now houses a windowed tub alcove, and by
installing a skylight above the toilet area.
