Home of the Week: The hanging gardens of Venice


Eco-conscious home builder Jason Teague left his mark when building a family residence in the Oxford Triangle area of Venice for himself. From the street, the two-tone contemporary draws the eyes upward with an impressive vertical garden that rises above the roofline. Inside, textured tiles give definition to a two-story wall that splits the bedrooms from the common areas.
