Amid Venice's tightly packed and rapidly changing landscape, this reimagined residence presents itself as a modern, airy retreat.
Conceived by artist/designer Kim Gordon, the multilevel home combines organic elements as well as raw industrial notes to produce thoughtful, indoor-outdoor spaces downstairs and a private master sanctuary above. Connecting the two worlds is an eye-catching glass-and-wood staircase — a signature of Gordon's designs.
