About The HQ

Nestled among the verdant canopy near the breathtaking Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania, the HQ bathroom stands as a testament to luxury and innovative design. Designed and delivered by Kyle Zanetto, director of Zanetto Builders & DARKITECTURE, this space is part of a residence that proudly claimed the title of Tasmanian House of the Year within its cost category.

Perched atop a triple-white Arctic White Oxide polished concrete floor, the bathroom features a seamlessly integrated shower. The shower base, hand-polished by skilled artisans, ensures a smooth, flowing transition in and out of the shower area, enhancing both the space's functionality and aesthetics. This attention to detail in surface finishes sets a precedent for the rest of the design elements within the room.

The bathroom's colour palette is a sophisticated array of neutral tones, from shades of grey to the luxurious textures of marble fish scale mosaics. These are thoughtfully complemented by warm timber joinery and striking black fixtures and fittings, creating a bold contrast that captivates the eye.

One of the standout features of this master ensuite is its impressive ceiling height of 2.7 meters, paired with meticulously aligned floor and ceiling linings. This precision allows for theplacement of three whole tiles from floor to ceiling around the walls, a detail that exemplifies the careful planning and execution of the tile layout.

The spatial design includes a large LED-lit marble-lined niche, which not only adds a touch of opulence but also functions effectively to enhance the room's lighting. Above this niche, a highlight window offers privacy while allowing natural light to cascade across the expansive 3m x 1.2m high mirror, illuminating the entire space and creating a bright, airy atmosphere.
