Best Outdoor Shower Designs – Dwell

Taula House offers a graceful mix of public and private spaces. The interiors open seamlessly onto the patio, where the outdoor shower is tucked in a corner.

Architect: M Gooden Design, Location: Dallas, Texas

From the architect: “Taula House is a single-family residence designed for a multi-generational family in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. The name ‘Taula House’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘balance.’ Guided by the Hindu architecture principles of Vastu shastra, this modern dwelling expresses a balance between traditional beliefs and contemporary ideologies of design. Symmetry, directional alignments, spatial geometry, and delicate detailing were all paramount to the design success of the project.”

2. Pole Pass Retreat

“We made the space as flexible as possible to allow for numerous potential uses in all four seasons,” says architect Tom Kundig. During the summer months, the property is especially lively as the residents take advantage of their waterfront location.

Architect: Olson Kundig, Location: Orcas Island, Washington

From the architect: “Nestled into a dense, wooded shoreline site, this intimate retreat serves as a gathering space for friends and family throughout the year, but takes particular advantage of the temperate Pacific Northwest summers. Located near the main house on a site accessed by boat, Pole Pass is situated to hug the dense woods while directing views out over the meadow and nearby harbor to the Salish Sea.” 

3. Bal Harbour Residence

A balcony with a private outdoor shower sits just outside the master bedroom’s ensuite bathroom.

Architect: Choeff Levy Fischman, Location: Bal Harbour, Florida

From the architect: “This eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom dwelling features an open-concept floor plan with plenty of room for entertaining and expansive, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors with curtain wall windows to complete the indoor/outdoor living experience. In true luxury style, the home is fully integrated with lighting controls, as well as audio-visual and drapery controls.” 

4. Pleats

An outdoor shower on the rear gable of the house is used for rinsing off from the pool or after an outdoor excursion—or for a quick wash down for their two rescue dogs.

Architect: The Ranch Mine, Location: Phoenix, Arizona

From the architect: “Sited in an eclectic neighborhood in the foothills of a mountain preserve, Pleats is a new 1,850-square-foot, three-sided courtyard house in Phoenix, Arizona. The foundation of the original house was reused and the space was redesigned to fit the bedrooms, including a master suite that was lacking before. A new, gabled volume was added to take in mountain views and provide an indoor/outdoor great room with a perforated metal patio cover to ease the transition from the strong, sunlit exterior to the interior. A garage and workshop is tucked behind the house, completing the three-sided courtyard.” 

5. Sand Dunes

Bi-fold doors open up a corner of the pool house to connect the internal jacuzzi with the external patio and beach.

Architect: Watershedd, Location: Mawgan Porth, England

From the architect: “Sand Dunes is a stunning front line holiday home overlooking Mawgan Porth beach in North Cornwall with unrivaled views out to sea. ​The house was built using locally sourced natural materials, from the local Cornish stone, reclaimed slate tiles, and architects select vertical black timber cladding. The dark tones of the cladding help the building to blend with the natural colors of the surrounding landscape.”
