In an architect’s house, expect a powder room with a concrete sink, right?
In a powder room, a concrete sink is a statement of sorts. It weighs in as modern or contemporary in an uncompromising way. In the home of prominent Massachusetts architect Mark Hutker, the sea-green powder room is consistent with the minimalist aesthetic of the house. The cast concrete sink with one sloping side is nice and large. The modernist wall-mounted faucet make the basic statement. Many brands, notably Dornbracht and Kohler, make sink faucets with a similar look. What’s distinctive about this one is the long blade handles that flank the faucet. A mirror set over the faucets is unusually narrow. Some designers would want to have the mirror extend the full width of the sink. However, fluorescent tube light sconces reinforce the look and help fill in the space. And a larger mirror would impinge on the simplicity of painted vertical painted country-style planking. Essentially, there is a minimal mirror and no tile at all. However, this combination is easy and effective. A guest finds everything necessary along with an elegant architectural aesthetic.
