By On Sep 22, 2018 Bathroom Design
The Ironworks Hotel Indianapolis is a new-build property that was designed with a 19th-century vibe. For the guest bathrooms, Sue Griffin, director of interior design at Hendricks Commercial Properties, which owns the property, wanted a spa-like experience with rain shower heads. To have a really a good rain shower head, you have to have good water pressure, she said. And we were fortunate with the new-build that we could make sure we had that ahead of time.
That leads to the next key design decision: a same-handed or mirrored patient room configuration. Same-handed arrangements orient all rooms and their contents in the same direction, whereas mirrored rooms are designed back-to-back, providing plumbing efficiencies with a shared wall between bathrooms.
As an example, Church-Smith cited the Best Western Central Hotel in Harrisburg, Pa., which had fans already installed in the guest bathrooms, but faced guest complaints about the noise from the system. Church-Smith recommended an updated two-for-one unit that combined a recessed LED with a fan that brings humidity up through the same hole that the light is in. It eliminates [the need for] another hole in the ceiling, he said of the new units.
