Home of the Week: Tale of two worlds in a Venice sanctuary

Home of the Week | Venice
The new-look Venice house has an indoor-outdoor vibe with multiple sitting areas, an outdoor fireplace and lush landscaping.
(Brandon Arant)

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.
