Architect Isabelle Duvivier had been living in rentals in Venice for many years when she decided to purchase her own home. She fell in love with a 1912 Craftsman cottage in Venice, although the place was not without its challenges — the house needed major repairs. Keeping historic elements from the home while renovating it to meet and exceed green standards was very important to Isabelle.
