Swiss Miss House / Charles DuBois


This A-frame home was designed by architect Charles DuBois in 1958 in an effort to stand out from the architecture of other neighbourhood homes. Better known as a Swiss Miss House for its chalet-inspired shape, the home is unlike the surrounding butterfly or flat-roofed houses of Vista Las Palmas that were built by Joe Dunas and the Alexander Construction Company in the 1950s. DuBois envisioned a low-lying ranch home that was bifurcated by a steep, dramatic A-frame roof that rose straight from the ground. 755 West Crescent Drive is on the market now for $2,999,900 — via Curbed
