Tour a Dreamy Escape Home High Above Sea Level in Cannes


With a rare 360-degree view of Cannes and the Lérins Islands, this family residence is full of natural light and a color palette inspired by the Mediterranean below. Designed by young interior architect design duo Humbert & Poyet, the house is the perfect expression of indoor-outdoor living. Founded by Monacan Christophe Poyet and Parisian Emil Humbert in 2007, the creative studio has been putting the finishing touches on projects from Monaco to Hong Kong, Dubai, London, and Mexico City, to name a few.

When Humbert and Poyet signed on to the project, the residence was merely a concrete shell. The owners, who began the projects several years prior, had decided to halt construction for a period of time. “We received a modern, open to nature, raw structure, and we had to finish everything,” recalls Poyet. “All the flooring, the windows, the surfaces—everything.” The owners, whose primary residence is in Paris, wanted the property to express the glamour of the Cote d’Azur: “something sophisticated, connected to nature, and a design where the inside and outside communicate,” explains Humbert.
