Venice contemporary displays a fresh face, forward-thinking

This contemporary residence, built in 1988, in Venice’s canal neighborhood presents itself as a happy marriage of eco-conscious features and minimalist design following a renovation by David Hertz.

The architect-environmentalist added a third story to bring in natural light and promote passive cooling. Solar-radiant heated floors, Hertz’s trademarked Syndecrete countertops and tile work, and a sustainable rooftop garden are among other green additions.
