Business Description
Ernesto is an architect and interior designer. At Studio Santalla we focus on quality and the skillful combination of all that goes in to a construction project from very technical issues like building codes to the very fine details like accessories. With Studio Santalla, you get the services of both professionals together, which results in efficiencies of both time and money.

Founded in 2001 by architect Ernesto Santalla, AIA LEED AP, Studio Santalla, Inc. is located at the corner of 31st and M Streets in Georgetown, Washington, DC.

Ernesto was born in Cuba and received a degree in Architecture from Cornell University in 1984, following which he moved to Washington, DC, and became a registered architect. Since then, he has contributed to the changing skyline of DC and worked on projects in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Europe. His work has been widely published and received numerous awards.

Studio Santalla offers professional services in Architecture, Interior Design, and Graphic Design. This website creates a window to Studio Santalla's projects, ideas and process–just enough to whet the appetite. We invite you to contact us to learn more about us and our work.

The base cabinets have a finger pull detail on the top edge, in the small gap between the the top of the cabinet door and the countertop. The wall cabinets are on a touch latch.

This is cedar. It is great for wet/damp locations, and it is also a sustainable wood because of its rapid growth cycle.

The Kohler tub was inserted in wood framing and enclosed in the FSC cedar, which had also been used on the exterior of the house. The "slab" top was made from wide planks of the material. The installation was completed according to the manufacturer's specifications.

While coloured tiles look amazing, I would use neutral tiles for a few reason including this one: that you can transform your bathroom by changing the colour of towels, change up the shower curtain, change paint colour etc to keep your bathroom up to date while keeping the tiles neutral. You will never tire of your bathroom with neutral tiles.

Love Color but tile is a long term commitment. Safer to go neutral then add color with paint.
