After discussing various layouts with the client this was the shower layout that provided the must amount of function for the client and freed up floor space. The floor plan shows the toilet in a new position away from the left hand wall. The basin has been moved from the window wall to the right hand wall. This will allow for a mirror to be fitted above the basin. The shower is a 1200mm x 800mm quadrant curved shower.
