Wood, Water and Concrete in a Modern Bathroom

A sleek upscale concrete bathroom with animal print accents.

Mike Moncrieff and his Bellingham, Wash., company, New Edge Design, submitted these photos of a concrete shower to our most recent Concrete Countertop Design Competition. We reluctantly decided shower installs couldn’t compete in a countertop contest. In all other respects, this is top-notch work.

The job, completed for a residential client in Bellingham, was dubbed by New Edge the “Vickie” project. It features a concrete shower with exposed bolts and a concrete step-in. “The customer wanted the company to have an open feel, yet be enclosed,” stated New Edge in its contest submission.
