NYC's Worst Bathroom Design Challenge
Who wants to win a client for the holidays?
We have one: Meet Kenny Lao.
Kenny has been so busy founding Rickshaw Dumplings, being the subject of an MTV special, becoming one of Inc Magazine’s 30 under 30,  Crain’s 40 under 40, and successfully operating a fleet of dumpling trucks that he forgot to take care of the little things, like his bathroom. That’s why we need you and your design expertise: help turn one of NYC’s worst bathrooms into a porcelain palace.
Background
Sure, bathrooms in New York are small, but what they lack in size they usually make up for in economy of space, tidiness and design.  Kenny’s bathroom is another story.
We want to help Kenny out and get you a new job at the same time. The competition asks for you to redesign Kenny’s bathroom.
View the video brief here.
Architizer and AF New York have put together an amazing team to help you out.   Brizo will provide all the fittings.  Duravit will provide all fixtures.  AFNY will offer accessories to be selected from the Cosmiic and Frost collections, along with hardware from Valli & Valli.
Task Definition
Create a design for Kenny’s bathroom that is efficient, attractive, and suited to Kenny’s needs.  Specifically, Kenny’s wish list includes:
•    Ability to drink directly from the sink.
•    Separate hot and cold water valves
•    Soap dishes that do not collect water
•    Ability to hang wet clothes
•    Tankless toilet if possible
•    Bench in shower
•    Awesome mirror above sink and also in shower (antifog a plus!)
•    A bright and light space
•    Easy to clean and looks clean , even when dirty
•    Powerful showerhead plus a handheld shower spray
Things Kenny could do without:
•    A tub
•    A shower curtain, or even a glass partition
