  • Dutton Lectures on the Architecture of Barcelona Modernisme

  • On the Boards: Design of New House for Artist Mr. Brainwash

    A new house for the celebrated artist Mr. Brainwash is under design by Dutton Architects. The house is very open, and fluid, with very tall ceilings on both floors and some double height spaces. As befitting an artist, lots of light, especially through a central circulation atrium space that divides the front and the back. The volumes of the house are a collage of materials: corrugated steel, concrete, wood, and large Neolith panels. Accents of wood warm the space, and furniture-like elements help bring the scale down.

  • AIA Award for Grey Gardens

    John Dutton, and Barbara Bestor (of Bestor Architecture), won a Next LA award from the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.) for their collaboration on their new senior housing prototype for the emerging baby-boom generation that is healthier, more social, active, and urban than previous generations.

  • Silver Lake Guest Pavilion Design

    Dutton Architects has completed a design for a guest pavilion and meditation  room on a spectacular site on top of Micheltorena Avenue in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
