This 12,000 square foot
residence in the San Diego area, designed in collaboration
with Howard Oxley Associates Architecture, is oriented to a
southern exposure with distant vistas. The architecture is
reminiscent of Corbusier and Richard Meier.
The modern interior design has been softened by the material
palette used throughout, which includes Indian Rajah slate
floors, flat cut medium-stained cherry cabinetry, and figured
anigre accent walls. The two-story fireplace is finished
in eggplant-colored waxed plaster, and has an arc of vertical
panels of oil-rubbed bronze. Waxed Italian plaster in a saddle-leather
color is used in the master seating area. At the clients’ request,
deep “jewel tone” colors were used throughout.
The three bathrooms shown in this project demonstrate the
variety of possibilities in creating contemporary bathroom
