House Description

Casa Artom is a grand 19th-century, two-story house sited in the residential neighbourhood of Dorsoduro; it faces the Grand Canal and sits between the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and Ca’ Dario.

We have two doors: the main one is at number #699 next to Guggenheim Museum whereas the #700 entrance, where the bell is, is only used for guest arrivals and deliveries.
The Venice Campus is built around a courtyard and has living quarters for students both on the ground floor and the floor above. These are connected by a winding staircase also leading to a mezzanine with administration offices and a small bathroom.

The upper floor includes a large kitchen and a spacious dining room, both with doors to a large outdoor terrace. There is a beautiful sitting-room with vistas of the Grand Canal, and a another smaller terrace nearby where the wisteria can be enjoyed in late springtime. There are three bedrooms that look out onto the Grand Canal, two bathrooms and an apartment used by professors in residence during the semesters.

On the lower floor are an elegant reception space with direct access to the courtyard and equipped with office facilities (fax, laser printer and copying machine) and a small bathroom, a classroom with a large library, a long hallway leading to the #699 main door, and a chandeliered foyer with a dock on the Grand Canal for arrivals and departures via water. Down this hallway are also five more bedrooms, a classroom with video facilities, doors to the courtyard and a laundry.
