Simply breathtaking.
This stunning architectural apartment, hand crafted by one of Venice’s leading architects in collaboration with one of France’s leading interior decorators, takes its inspiration from the work of Carlo Scarpa, with its terrazzo floors, creamy marmorino walls, bronze windows, and incomparable floor to ceiling slab marble bathrooms.
