The bathroom is now a bright room which, with its beautiful dormer windows and doors still brings the original building to mind, but is otherwise awash in modern life.

The bathroom is now a bright room which, with its beautiful dormer windows and doors still brings the original building to mind, but is otherwise awash in modern life.

How to convert a marvelous historicist villa in south Cologne back from offices into a residence: It was a task that OX2architects and managing partner Ina-Marie Orawiec handled, creating a haven for the owners under the striking mansard roof. The bathroom is now a bright room which, with its beautiful dormer windows and doors still brings the original building to mind, but is otherwise awash in modern life. Ina-Marie Orawiec transplanted the new fittings into the heart of the room and chose materials and colors to clearly distinguish the old from the new: bright gray fine plaster, oak floorboards and wood lacquered white contrast with dark moiré fine stoneware and glass. 

Multi-award-winning design courtesy of Vola is also present in the very latest variant: the mixers are finished with a refined PVD surface, meaning treated in a vacuum-based coating process. The resulting colored top finish is not only staggeringly brilliant, but also scratch and corrosion-resistant. A total of seven color versions are available: black chrome, brushed black chrome, glossy deep black, copper, brushed copper, bright gold and brushed gold.

The choice for the Cologne villa fell on brushed black chrome which contrasts excitingly with the surface of the fine stoneware: The materiality of the shimmering Vola mixers ensures they stand out against the deep moiré ceramic calls and floor coverings with their rusty and earthen tones, whereby the colors harmonize well. The elegant PVD finish thus forms an ideal counterpoint to the coarse, industrial look of the fine stoneware. Alongside the mixers on the basins, the satin black PVD finish was also selected for the towel warmers and hooks, flush buttons, showerheads and single-handle showers.
