The house was conceived as three elements, the main residence, the living space and the floating barn. It is built on a site that sits within a valley, with views of the mountain range. The area benefitted from its surrounding forest reserves, giving the house a natural backdrop.
The design approach was to build the house with inter-connecting blocks, effectively carving out with open courtyards within living, dining and family spaces, surrounded by outdoor gardens. Responding upon its tropical climate, the home rely upon these courtyards and pocket spaces providing shades and daylighting. The surrounding veranda is designed with a purposeful depth, forms the key shading from the hot sun, as well as the tropical rainstorm. The floating barn cantilevers over the landscape, providing panoramic views from the full height windows. The simple, delineated roof lines is silhouetted against the sky at dusk.
