Critically acclaimed architectural “floating” house has become a much photographed Venice landmark. Original 1913 bungalow was enhanced by 2009 construction of a second story modernist addition. Light, bright with exceptional mountain (and neighborhood) views, both second story and original home remain faithful to an aesthetic of exposed plywood, country maple floors (and built-ins) and an exuberant use of space.
While the original bungalow is colored sedate gray, the upper addition is playfully sheathed in a semi-translucent polycarbonate skin — resulting in startling sunsets and diffused light.
Additional features include an expansive roof deck, large sliding glass windows and lots of storage. This is a must-see Venice residence. Prepare to pleasantly surprise your most conservative buyer.
