Gansa White Residence

A tub with a view

After living their entire adult lives in apartments, the clients told John they wanted a master bathroom that felt open and airy and ample in scale. As part of a larger addition, Dutton Architects built this bathroom as a composition with light and tile. A white ceramic subway tile floor, contrasts with a mosaic glass tile tub deck and steps. A larger blue glass wall is under a skylight.


A small window situated at the foot of the tub is located so the bather gets a view up into the hills of the Palisades.

Bench/fountain for entertaining


An ‘L’ shaped concrete bench anchors one end of a new limestone terrace. On the top of the seat back is a water rill that ends as a water-feature centered on the dining room picture window. At the beginning of the rill is a smaller basin sized to fit wine bottles so they can be kept chilled.

Open Kitchen


The kitchen was designed to be open and light-filled. The owner teaches occasional cooking classes and needed enough space for her clients. She wanted her pottery collection on display, which was achieved by floating wood shelves on a full-height white subway tile wall. Two skylights over the counter bring ample natural light into the kitchen, and a tall wood ceiling with blue-gray stain gives the room a a sense of height and volume. The cabinets were designed more like pull-out drawers so the owners could see what was in each one.


The floor is carbonized bamboo, the counter is bluestone, and the cabinets are maple.
