The Huit House designed by Tactic-a is certainly a stand out. In lieu of the typical brick or wood, the designers opted for yellow and gray vertical stripes for the homes exterior.
The house features an L-shaped floor plan that surrounds and privatizes the southeast garden. A row of south-facing windows were added to maximize natural light. The multi-level roof also helps to augment light in the top floor and living area. The architects surmise, "The north facade is blind and windows on the west facade are ending with full transparency into the garden in search of the best sunlight and thermal conditions."
The interior features a central, double-height living and dining area, a master bedroom equipped with a pebbled terrace and a statement wooden staircase.
