Last month, when the otherwise nondescript home at 42 Chenery in a Glen Park landed on the MLS, we puzzled over the unique showering scenario in the master suite, which turns hygiene into performance by requiring bathers to undertake their daily ablutions without walls—and maybe also with friends! Commenters, for the most part, were appalled by the slip hazard and the prospect of a moldy bedroom. SFGate tracked down the architect, Mark English, who called the arrangement "beyond function"—a description that is, technically speaking, irrefutable. English goes on to explain: "Comfort, sensuality, theater and beauty are the desires enabled in the new space." No accident, then, that the shower is right where most people would just put a television.
