Named after the seasonally strong, north-westerly wind that blows across the Mediterranean, Mistral is like a sleek cruise ship. This striking home leverages the angularity of outward-leaning structural elements and similarly angled glazed walls to fashion an almost vertiginous experience both inside and outside of a powerful vessel driving through the sea. Mistral comprises four levels, including a large entertainment room in the basement, dining, dry kitchen, and living are on the entry level, while level two consists of bedrooms and a roof terrace overlooking the canal.
