When you’re working on an architectural project, you have a lot of balls in the air. Quite a few of them are really, really important. Structure, HVAC, layout, etc. Sometimes though, one of the smaller balls drops and you might have never even noticed it.
When I was a fresh intern working on not much more than bathroom details, I was told to always place the joint in the mirror halfway between the sinks. The projects I work on typically have larger bathrooms with fairly long mirrors. So, I did it without really thinking why, and have always done that throughout my career without ever really questioning that little detail.
Well, low and behold years, later I was washing my hands in one of these larger commercial restrooms and looked up when I was done.
Well, I don’t know about you, but this is not one of my better selfies.
