The architecture is formed of three layers; a thick concrete wall on its south west side and a transparent glass wall on its north side and between these two the walls that partition one space from the other. It is laden with numerous details each that add and engage its inhabitants with quirky intrigue. Experiments in pigmented concrete, concrete and acrylic panels, a wall of metal louvres and a delicately hung staircase with skylights are perhaps some of its stark features. Metal, glass and concrete make the primary elements of its tectonic constitution.
