Room Division Done Right

As urban living faces space challenges, this design team has a good solution to make most of the limited carpet area that your home may have. Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!

Features:

  • The toilet and shower’s air is evacuated by the VMC on the top.
  • The waster from the sink is used to flush the toilet.
  • All water flux lead to water discharge in the shower.

Designers: Roy Benjamin, Verdu Pierre & Denat Alexandra

    Nicely thought out – The water savings are rarely addressed in most designs. May I suggest a bathroom sink design I saw in a train – this was a bowl with out a central drain that folded up into the wall (which also drained the water). This meant that you could not let the water continually run, and also took less room when stored.

    I like it, but would like to also see:

    – manufacturing and installation details.
    – flat pack volume and simplicity.
    – extra storage at the higher level of the kitchen, maybe just open plan shelving and hanging systems.
    – the sink permantantly in the bed space, as I think waterproofing of the shower maybe an issue in the longer term, just a small fixed whb.

    Apart from that I like it, wouldn’t want to live with it, but like it.

    not sure i would want to live with it either. if you wouldn’t want to live with it… and i wouldn’t want to live with it…and presumably other would agree, then is it actually a good design?

    Great design! Especially for smaller (temporary) spaces. Studios, student housing, eco-retreat cabins/lodges etc. Just fit it in.

    Multiple sizes? pre-fab? Light-weight for easy expor/transport? Easy assembly?

    Any pricing indications?

    For those not pleased with the design (and I mean this in a friendly manner), where do you hail from?

    Western folks tend to be concerned more with space than those from Eastern cultures. It’s upbringing and what we are used to, so isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it makes a difference in our view of design.

    That said I agree with both the point on storage as well as that on the sealing of the shower.

    I believe the storage issue would add to the design without taking functional space from the occupant, assuming the ceilings are not significantly lower than the norm. (would be nice to see basic space measurements)

    As for the shower, an accordion style sheeting that is mounted to the inside of the shower wall and that edge of the sink structure would create a permanent seal that does not get opened even when the sink is folded into the shower. It would create a bit more surface area to clean in the shower perhaps, but it would solve the problem as long as the seal material was not brittle. Another, more esthetically pleasing option, might be a magnetic cushion seal not unlike that of a refrigerator, although I am uncertain if that would be structurally superior, and it would create a possible mildew problem without maintenance.

    Just some thoughts. 🙂

    Werecan i get further detail on this product?

  • Bill says:

    Please return email

  • Actually when someone doesn’t understand after that its up to other
    visitors that they will assist, so here it takes place.

  • Alexa says:

    very interesting. I think the concept is very efficient especially the water system. but the installation and actually the space it requires is kind of blurry for me.
    but the concept on how you did the water-distribution system is really good. It was really interesting.:)

    Small is cool, I love this design.

  • It is really beautiful , thanks for sharing with us
