This bedroom designed by Albert Abutov boasts an awesome translucent concrete wall that serves as a divider between the space and a bathroom. Since the concrete wall is translucent, then sunlight that comes to the bedroom can be transmitted to the bathroom.
Thus, the bathroom can appear bright enough during the day although you don’t turn on any electric lights. If the bedroom occupant requires dim light at night, he or she may choose to turn on the bathroom lighting. Transmitted by the translucent wall, the lighting will help to illuminate the bedroom.
