Description
A 2,800-square-foot, two-story, wood- and steel-frame, stucco-clad, composition-roof, three-bedroom home with roof deck and spa.

Approach
This home for a businessman/artist reflects his eclectic tastes, as well as the multi-dimensional character of the Venice Canals. The contextual design draws upon references from four “ages” typical of local construction: the stout stone structures of “ancient” Venice (Italy), the delicately scaled wood bungalows of “old” Venice (California), the simple stucco forms of “recent” construction, and the “current” idiosyncratic architecture.
