    Default In Venice, a Home Ensconced in Glass


    Lorenzo Nencioni for The New York Times
    Marco Agostini received a dilapidated 17th-century stone building from his uncle Giuseppe Boccanegra in 2006. The building had been used to store boats and gondolas. In 2008, Mr. Agostini hired Caprioglio Associati Architects to redevelop the property into a contemporary home.

    The bathroom is a nightmare, but the architects did a great job with utilization of space.

    How can one live in Venice and have a home that is cold and sterile?

    Exactly! In Venice you want faded gold, red, marble antique opulence with a modern twist, not a Swiss clinic.

    The inside is making me dizzy and the outside is too damn close to the water. Jesus, what is up with all these houses being so close to water lately? It's horrifying!

    That is EXACTLY what I was going to write. Horrible tile!

    The upstairs is better than the downstairs, but it's still all pretty ghastly.
