Freestanding handmade steel lavatories, designed and built by the architects, were placed in the hallways so the homeowner and guests can look out onto the southern view. “It’s such a fantastic landscape—you fall right into it,” Rockhill says. The mirror reflects the private toilet and tub room finished in two-inch mosaic tile.
