Architect Bruce Wentworth transforms a master bath into a spa-like retreat

Clients with kids attending college in DC purchased a 1980s townhouse in Georgetown, which was saddled with builder-grade finishes and a dated look. They enlisted architect Bruce Wentworth to do the remodel. Among the most dramatic changes: a stylish master bath boasting high-end finishes and a spacious new layout. “The original space was choppy,” Wentworth says. “We gutted it and started over.”

The new plan eliminated a bidet and created a smaller WC and a roomy shower enclosure. A double vanity stretches along the opposite wall, while the soaking tub is built into a skirted platform; both the vanity top and tub surround are made of engineered stone. The tub is bordered by built-in storage at one end. The owners wanted a transitional look, so Wentworth selected a clean-lined, walnut vanity. Distinctive marble mosaic tile from Ann Sacks covers the vanity and tub walls, and large-format Arabascato marble floor tiles keep the space light. A frameless glass shower enclosure contributes to the minimalist aesthetic.
