Architect Whitney Sander & Designer Catherine Holliss: Space for Ideation
Architect Whitney Sander and designer Catherine Holliss' house in the Venice canals is an idea house. Cerebral in concept and execution, the creation is built entirely without walls, embracing a myriad of materials - sunflower-seed wall board, bamboo flooring, marmoleum, recycled-steel structural frames, to name a few - that are used to delineate spaces, much like the 'skin and bones' of shelter.
