ZeroEnergy Design and Sustainable Construction Services Create an Award Winning Bathroom
The PRISM Awards in Boston highlight a spectacular new modern bathroom with a Silver Award.
Daniel Glickman of Sustainable Construction Services said he was “proud to receive the Silver PRISM award for Best Bathroom Renovation”, as given by the Builders Association of Greater Boston. The PRISM Awards honor excellence in building, design, sales and marketing as well as many other categories.
The original master bathroom lacked any significant updates since the house was originally constructed in 1912, featuring only a small sink and a dark cavernous shower. Simple, modern conveniences such as storage and counter space were non-existent. Client requests for the renovation included finding space in the master bathroom for both a tub and a shower, providing the master suite with more closet space, and making the changes feel fresh, healthy, and bright. Generally, create a clean, modern oasis within the traditional home.
The new master now incorporates twin sinks for the couple, ample countertop area, a shower with a clear glass surround, and a sleek tub directly beneath the windows. ZeroEnergy Design created a clean feeling space with wonderful light with a quartz vanity top, floating custom bamboo cabinetry, and twin frameless mirrors with tall vertical light fixtures. The floating vanity opens up the floor area, giving the bathroom a more spacious feel.
During the renovation Sustainable Construction Services turned the previous bathroom space conversion into a useful walk-through closet, by incorporating a space-saving pocket door and shallow casework, which provided greatly needed storage space for the master suite.
The master bathroom was part of a larger renovation by the team including a thermal envelope upgrade for the entire house, complete plumbing & electrical replacement, complete systems upgrade (new high efficiency heating & cooling, heat recovery ventilator, indirect hot water, high efficiency lighting), the addition of a new mudroom with half bath, and three bathroom renovations.
“Together, ZeroEnergy Design and Sustainable Construction Services did an amazing job on the entire renovation. The master bathroom stood out as exceptional, now highlighted by the PRISM award”, said Adam Prince, Business Development Principal at ZeroEnergy Design.
