Phase one of a Charlestown townhouse renovation consisted of converting an undersized second floor bathroom into the workhorse washroom serving a growing family of four. An adjacent bedroom in the original ell of the home was renovated to give square footage to the bathroom expansion. A surface-mount sliding door neatly stores out of the way, opening the bathroom space to the hallway and its abundance of natural light. The tight layout, which accommodates a full-size tub for bathing children, is designed to feel much larger than it is. A tapered, marble countertop ends in a custom, stainless steel sink that is wrapped in reclaimed pine to reference the original flooring. The entire ell was thought through as a functional, family wing which could be sequestered as its own guest suite in a later phase.
