ADA Bathroom Renovation
Funk & Little, Inc. was involved with a very exciting, challenging, full bathroom renovation. We had initially done a design in house that the owner liked but wasn't wowed with. We then, after a series of interviews, engaged with Wadsworth Kamm Architects to design a space that the owners would love.
The design needed to center around a few key desires, unique lighting, no fixtures touching the floor, and to be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant as best as possible without an ADA feel.
The floor is heated. There are colored LED light strips around the ceiling and inside the shower niches, heated bench seat, heated mirror to keep the steam off, flush lights on either side of the mirror, Bamboo vanity and a medicine cabinet custom built to fit in the tight space, shelving for art, a cast glass panel to separate the shower area from the toilet area. You will notice that there is no real shower enclosure, There are glass shelves that appear to grow out of the wall. The LED lighting has a half a dozen different colors that can be fixed or can gradually rotated from color to color. we added floor to ceiling windows and one sun tunnel for natural lighting. The ballet bar wraps completely around the bathroom for both ascetics and grab bar functionality.
Funk & Little, Inc. worked with many subcontractors on this project who all at one point or another said the following statement, "Well, I've never done that before". Hastillo Electric, E&A Flooring and Tile, Windham Industries (metal work), New England Glass and Mirror, Boyle Drywall, T. F. Jones Plumbing.
We could not have had the fantastic outcome of this project without all of their enthusiastic input and craftsmanship. Finally, we thank the owners for their incredible indulgence in our abilities and vision for this project.
