But this cheerful and glamorous home in designed by Maxime Jacquet takes a chic and playful approach towards the timeless classic. Combining pops of bright orange and yellow with silver grey and chocolate brown the luxurious interior of this fascinating home draws you in instantly.
Crafted by Affleck de la Riva architects the semi-detached house is located on a hillside and works around the asymmetric topography of the site to deliver a truly stunning residence filled with elegance and opulence.
The top floor contains the master bedroom and luxurious bathroom along with an expansive walk-in closet. Embracing a neutral color scheme all three levels seem like a natural extension of one another even as pops of bright color are kept to a bare minimum.
The main floor of the house contains the central living area along with a small dining space and sleek kitchen. Decor additions like the Moooi Random Lights and the timeless Eames chairs lend a touch of class and sophistication to the space. An elegant staircase leads to the upper level that features a bedroom and bath.
And did I mention one of the most intriguing aspects of the house? I could see myself enjoying a good book by the fire while the wind and rain storm outside. Or maybe I’m daydreaming again.

To minimize the impact of the building to the site — it’s a hybrid structure made entirely of wood with some steel and very little concrete — the architects also ensured that the house is completely off the grid. Which is why independent sources of heat and electricity were added.
