How a Dream Venice House Came Together

When TV director Kenneth Fink first met with Venice-based architecture-design firm Marmol Radziner + Associates (acclaimed for redoing the iconic Richard Neutra Kaufmann House in Palm Springs), he wanted to build a modern house with an inviting feel. "They delivered more than I imagined by using warm materials including wood ceilings and floors," says TV director-producer Fink (CSI, Revenge). He lives in the four-bedroom, 3,700-square-foot house with his wife, journalist-documentarian Beth Osisek, and their three children.
