Just behind the vanities is a giant window that transforms from opaque to transparent at the flip of a switch, revealing ocean views.
Because bathrooms need to ensure privacy, Hall replaced the room’s tiny window with a much larger one made of Smart Glass. The new 8-by-10-foot window, composed of liquid crystal sandwiched between two panes of glass, transforms from clear to opaque at the flip of a switch. Fabricated by Pittsfield-based LTI Group, the roughly 700-pound window is an inch-and-a-quarter thick and had to be hoisted up to the second-story bathroom by crane. “It was pretty impressive to watch,” says Hall, noting that the expanse of glass was the largest LTI had ever made.
