Strobel Design Build, Saint Petersburg, Florida
In Florida, a “Pool Bath” is common, and usually consists of a narrow door entering from the exterior pool area, a simple vanity, a toilet, and a shower. The clients wanted to convert an existing 1950s bathroom and adjoining mechanical closet into a pool bath with Cuban-inspired influences. The new space is large, with a 12-foot-long bench to accommodate the many relatives with multiple young children who need a place to change. A wall-mounted toilet and sink makes washing away sand and dirt easy. Cuban concrete floor tiles complete the space.
