Best Sustainable Bathroom

Ines Hanl The Sky is the Limit Design, Victoria, BC Co-Designer: Kimberly Lewis Manning Designer Ines Hanl, based in Victoria, BC, relying on sustainable components and materials such as locally-built white concrete trough sink with recycled glass content, non-VOC chocolate bamboo plywood cabinets – built on-site, and a wall-hung low flow toilet, created a bathroom well-suited to this amazing bathroom space that appears to be floating over the lake beyond. The clients requested dual access to the room so that it can act as a guest bathroom

as well as the bathroom to accompany a workout space. Ambient floor heat originating from a geothermal heat pump that is also used as the water heater provides technical support to the sustainable approach, and a lighting system on different circuits and dimmers offers greater control so potentially less electricity.
