Winner of RIBA South East award and RIBA Regional Sustainability award, Handsmooth is a reinvention of the country house. Wetroom Materials supplied and installed the waterproofing to the rooms allowing the main contractor to provide their clients with a 10 year no leak guarantee. Not only does this provide peace of mind for the customer, but also for the main contractor that the work has been carried out correctly and there will be no issues.
The American architect, Richard Meier, planned Handsmooth House for an anonymous client, and was designed around minimalist and contemporary design concepts.
Specific to the site of the house and the related buildings, the design seeks to integrate the landscape and views as part of its identity, bringing a natural balance between building and landscape. Considering this approach, a clean and minimal design would have to be achieved throughout the entire house including the bathroom and shower spaces, and would not draw attention away from the property’s natural surroundings.
Wetroom Materials were able to offer the perfect drainage solution for such a project. The HighLine Custom is a sleek and discrete drainage finish that allows the material of the finished floor to run onto the drain and leave only a slim drainage gap that serves the functional purpose of the drain.
The finished floor choice within the shower areas was a white Corian material, a finish that provides an impossibly clean and bright surface; perfectly suited to the property that was finished with white interior walls and external white render.
Wetroom Materials not only supplied the drainage systems, but also installed the waterproofing to the rooms allowing the main contractor to provide their clients with a 10 year no leak guarantee. This guarantee provides peace of mind to the end client, but also to the main contractor, ensuring that the work has been carried out correctly and to the highest standards.

My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
