Architectural Details: 10 Skylights in the Bath

February 25, 2013

A well-detailed skylight in a bathroom (minimal frame and soft diffused light) can transport your daily ablutions to a plein air experience. A poorly detailed skylight, on the other hand (too much frame and harsh light), will only make you wish you were outside all the more. Here are 10 favorites from the first category.
