Home of the day: A wood-and-steel contemporary in Venice

Interiors awash in white oak floors and redwood ceilings provide a visual contrast to the cool gray exterior of this newly built Venice contemporary. Designed by local architect Robert Thibodeau of Design Universal Architects, a floating glass staircase framed in steel acts as a divider between public areas on the main floor, while walls of glass invite light. On the top level, a rooftop deck invites entertaining with outdoor speakers and a fire pit.
