Cleansing Extended introduces a small sized bathroom that does exactly that. It extends.
The proposal enriches the bathroom experience by extending the bathroom volume upwards to the roof to introduce natural light, clouds and stars, outwards to maximise usable space and inward by introducing a large mirror on the opposing wall to further enlarge the space.
Employing a mechanical system, the bathroom section that holds the bath tub extends towards the exterior of the house, bringing the experience of taking a bath in the tub further outward, in open space, under more sky.
The bathroom can be used in both scenarios, having the option to shower while being in the bath tub or separating the two by extending the volume. This makes it possible for two people to use water for cleaning at the same time, under two separate circumstances.
Moreover, the width of the bathroom allows for two showers to run simultaneously being used by the owner couple.
