Steal This Look: A Modernist Bath in Prague with Pale Yellow Accents from A1 Architects

September 12, 2023

We recently came across the work of A1 Architects, a design firm founded in Prague in the Czech Republic in 2005 by architects Lenka Křemenová and David Maštálka. In the renovation of a Prague apartment, A1 reimagined a large bath opening onto a terrace with completely modern simplicity from fixtures to materials. A checkerboard tiled floor in white and butter yellow stands out against the gallery-like space. Its fixtures apply well to many forms of bath remodels. Here, a list of similar sources to re-create the look.
