Built in 1988, this three-unit loft project in Venice was among the principals' first major commissions. The firm was asked to renovate the building in 2006 with new kitchens, bathrooms, and lighting.
The architectural bones of the building are sound and the lofty spaces remain relevant in Venice' s fiercely competitive rental market. Testament to the original conception of live-work spaces, the units have attracted artists, designers, and photographers over the years.
The recent renovation replaced existing cabinetry and bathroom fixtures with a selective mix of high and low end products typical of our mix-and-match, more dash than cash approach when faced with severe budgetary constraints. We shopped IKEA and Anne Sacks.
All three spaces quickly leased and the building now stands ready to enjoy the continued revival of Rose Avenue, which, after some bleak decades, is one of the liveliest mixed-use streets in Venice.
