The brief was the most beautiful bathroom in New Zealand, a goal that has certainly been achieved. Stone clad concrete masonry walls hold up a glazed timber grid creating a stunning space.

In order to keep the lines of the timber as clean as possible PTL engineers came up with a series of notch and screws joint solutions that eliminated the requirements for visible or plug bolt heads.
