At first glance, it is difficult to determine that this class-enclosed structure is actually a fully functioning home called 'Casa Jura.' The villa is built seamlessly into the hills of the French countryside and blends with the natural landscape that surrounds it. A sloping green roof further blends the wavy house into the topography and natural twist and turns of the land.

Despite its deceptive facade, Casa Jura has quite a spacious interior. The front of the home has two floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the wide open green space it faces. Two deep incisions in the terrain were needed to make space for the interior, while the upper elevation left untouched. The minimalist neutral interior and light colored hardwood floors allows for the picturesque view to remain the focal point of the home.
