The design of the house displays the synthesis of colonial and modern elements.  The style is apparent in all aspects of modern tropical living with effective cross ventilation and extended roof eaves overhang.

The main concepts of design is based on the creation of a place for living which incorporates a sense of nature.  The internal space is carefully planned with quality of light enabling it to communicate a feeling and mood. 

The entrance of the house is accentuated by a grand portico set within a full height glass panel through which diffused light illuminates the internal foyer. This grandeur flows into the interior as one is greeted by the sweep of an elegant free-standing curved staircase celebrated within the double volume foyer.

Spaces on the first storey are designed for the flexibility to accommodate varying number of guests with concealable sliding doors allowing activities to flow through the living, dining and kitchen area.  The basement area is for private use and more intimate gatherings with facilities such as the gym, pool and spa.
