The single most important aspect of the scheme was the way the architecture preserves the original terrain of the land. The use of horizontal lines in the canopy, the neo-art-deco RC ledges to circle the site accentuated the terraced nature of the bowl-shaped site, Tucking the landscape into the hill was an important step in ensuring that as little as possible was seen above the original formation of the land. That resulted in two interesting features: the curvilinear airwell with the cribwall planting and the bermuda grass lawn above the bedroom block.
The main strategy was designing the new blocks to be separate and in single room width, ensuring ample light and ventilation. The earth over the main bedroom block also provides heat insulation. The creation of as much outdoor and open space as possible was another strategy adopted.
