  • Dutton Lectures on the Architecture of Barcelona Modernisme

    At the 2017 CNU in Seattle, John Dutton lectured on Barcelona Modernisme and Architectural Character.

    The panel focused on the idea of character, as opposed to style or typology, two better-known terms these days. Character implies the notion of architectural judgment, as articulated in Samir Younes’ “The Imperfect City: On Architectural Judgment.”

  • Hillside house in Brentwood with ocean views starts construction

    Dutton Architects is creating a new two-story addition to a modern house in Brentwood and renovating the rest of the house.  The addition accommodates two home offices for the couple, both TV/film writers, three bedrooms, a kitchen, a family room, and other support spaces.

  • 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.

  • Beverly Hills house completed

    Dutton Architects recently completed a major renovation of a 1960’s post and beam house in the hills of Beverly Hills.
