Treetop Aerie

First Place: Large Bath

Treetop Aerie

This glass-enclosed bath suite, conceived as part of a whole-house renovation, is perched in the treetops of a Northwest DC property. The functional and minimalist design by Mary Douglas Drysdale features separate glass enclosures for the shower and WC, along with a soaking tub, dressing room, coffee station, private deck and even a workspace with a white-lacquered wood desk.

Drysdale instilled a sense of calm and order, deftly connecting the various spaces through a simple yet refined material palette of Thassos marble and matching Caesarstone. This clean, white backdrop also allows the outdoor colors to take center stage.

“I was concerned about privacy even though my client wasn’t,” admits Drysdale. “Our compromise was rollover shutters on windows facing the street side of the home.”

This luxurious suite, which replaced a mundane, 1950s-era bathroom, provides the homeowner with a true escape in her own house.
