"We set out to prove one does not have to sacrifice beautiful design to build a sustainable space," said designer Beth Slifer. Inspired by the intricate, delicate balances that exist within nature that allow life to exist, Slifer blended natural, recyclable materials with leading edge technology to create Fire & Ice, a calm, serene environment that both nurtures and rejuvenates the spirit.

Upon entering the space, the eyes are immediately drawn to the gentle glow of flickering candles that, surrounded by sustainable Mesquite wood tile, serve as one focal point for the space. The warmth of the light is balanced by the cool, pristine nature of glass lavatory sinks, which rest on a recycled concrete countertop and custom bamboo base cabinet. A large showering area features a wall of recycled metal tiles that meet a reclaimed teak shower grate; with Kohler® DTV™ II technology, water-conserving showerheads, and low-flow body sprays it proves perfect for a short soak or a prolonged, saturating experience. A main floor of reclaimed oak leads to a secluded space featuring a waterless urinal and high efficiency toilet – two technologies that elegantly save water, a treasured resource.

A rustic chandelier comprised of naturally shed antlers lights the center of the space and contrasts beautifully with the refined, contemporary pendant lighting above the vanity. This space speaks to male and female sensibilities, reclaimed and recycled natural materials, and the respect for all.
