- roofing lines and height were constrained, so as to minimize the visual impact on the beach front neighbourhood;
- natural exterior colours
- to counteract the weathering due to the monsoons, contemporary construction materials incorporated the use of double redbrick walls to provide heat insulation, premium glazed roof tiles, sheet roof insulation, hardwoods,
- sand-washed finish was used for all decking, walkways and deck seating
- salas on the upper and lower decks provide shade and shelter for dining/entertaining
- in order to marry the coolness of Asian interiors with the airiness and light of the American North West sea coast, double-size hardwood and glass sliding doors are used extensively, together with extra high ceilings and a large stairwell.
- Local woodworkers hand built all of the hard wood features, including windows, sliding doors etc.
