The effect is bold and exciting, executed with just enough restraint to be sophisticated and tasteful.

Chameleon House is a truly one of a kind luxury property, the collaborative effort of some of the design world’s most innovative thinkers. The third building of the estate serves as a guest house, with over 2,000 sqft of living area and its own private access road.
