Custom Tiled Platform Shower

Hello Fellow Tile Enthusiasts,
I am remodeling my bathroom and saw this shower pan. Looks like a platform (instead of a curb)with glass on the outside. Has anybody tried it? Thanks!

Wet Room?

Does whole entire room have to be a wet room? (Doesn't look like it.)

I think you're seeing something that's not there. It's sort of like an M.C. Escher drawing.

Look where the wall meets the "platform" you see. The glass distorts things a bit too, but I see floor tile running under glass to what I presume is slope starting at inside edge of glass or at the edge of differing tile.

I can imagine that glass in front of slope would be a nightmare to keep clean anyway.

Could be they used a border tile, or just let the floor tile run under the glass.

If that shower floor was a platform they would have had to install the glass first, especially with the brackets they used. I don't think there's a chance they did that, and how would they have "finished" the ends of the platform that would show through the glass?

I would think there is a support running from the ceiling to the 90 of the 2 glass panels. The large panel is too big to leave just attached on the wall. That being the case it's doable.

Yes! You are right. It is an optical illusion. Upon closer inspection, in the right hand corner of the picture, you can see the floor tile is running under the glass. It is a flat walk-in shower. Curbless.

Hey! Could my original idea be possible? Could a glass guy laminate the back of the glass to match the color of the tile, and silicone it in place like a fish tank?

Probably, but why?

If the shower floor is actually flat then it won't drain well. If it won't drain well there will be a lot standing water. If there is a lot of water it won't dry. If it won't dry it will develop mold and mildew, and rather quickly.

While some designs look fantastic they are impractical.
