Minimum vanity depth needs to be 18 inches although you can go less but then it becomes a very small sink. Height is typically 36 inches above finished floor and length is whatever the layout of your bathroom is Keep in mind if there is a toilet next to the vanity then there needs to be a 30 inch clearance (15 from each side measured from the center of the toilet as well as 24 inch clearance from the front of the toilet to the vanity if the arrangement is such.
I'm building the vanity.

Leo's building the "cool" drawer that goes around the plumbing.

You make a 36" high vanity for a vessel sink in a house with an 80 year old get ready for a lot of complaining. The top of the sink would be 44" AKA up to his nipples.

36 inches respectively the range of 32 to 36 inches is within the height as prescribed per code.For tall people or at the customers request it can be also higher and vice versa.
Since most sink openings are at level of the countertop and concave in this would be appropriate height.
For a vessel sink I would make the rim above floor to be at the around 36 inches. At the request of the client and the physical height it could be lower as well.
Lastly you might want to consider ADA compliance in the bathroom design if your client is age 80.

My wife and I have been discussing how to style our hall bath. The other day she told me she wants ship lap. Maybe I'll tell her she can have it if she installs it

ADA has their requirements, general construction, no code that I know of for height AFF.

I know, but many like the OP think the recommendation is "code" and confuse recommendations with codes.

Good point. Maybe I'll go with "it's not in the budget" instead
