Octagon Developments Ltd was designing and developing a bespoke five-bedroom country mansion set within the exclusive Wentworth Estate in Virginia Water, Surrey.
The luxurious features befitting a project of this scale included a leisure suite, comprising gymnasium, 10x5m indoor swimming pool and changing / shower rooms.
Having already worked with Octagon on a number of projects, Dröm UK was selected to create the bespoke steam room within the leisure suite.
The steam room adjoins the ground floor gym which opens out onto an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by immaculately landscaped gardens.
Dröm UK was fully involved with the design throughout the project, working with the Octagon team as well as with the client who visited their showroom to personally select tiles and other finishes.
Dröm UK produced detailed construction drawings and an M&E specification before undertaking the complete installation on site.
The striking, opulent steam room is entered through a frameless doorset within the full glass frontage. Rich chocolate and gold flecked glass mosaic tiles adorn the floor, walls and the sinuous custom made benches. The contrasting, lighter-coloured mosaic tiled ceiling twinkles with a fibre optic, colour-changing starry sky.
Also included in the design are LED lights fitted in the base of the benches, and a fully programmable touch-screen control panel, which helps to create the right ambience and room temperature.
On completion, the client said:
"Dröm UK recently designed and installed our beautiful steam room which is in constant use by the whole family.
Dröm were very professional and went out of their way to fulfil every requirement. They were a pleasure to work with."
Developer Octagon received the the LABC trophy for the building controls in the project.
