As further reading suggests the house has two fronts, meaning its side-front and its front-front, both translated into the load bearing, and shape giving structure of its roof. The ceiling is a timber grate enabling airflow, resulting in a comfortable climate, even on hot days.

The 3 dimensional distribution and orientation of spaces seeks to maximize privacy for each room and space offered in the residence, at the same time provides different places of gathering and activity. Like a village in a house, the spaces form a compound – reinterpreting traditional way of Balinese compound living.

Nearly all surfaces are clad with ‘Baligreen’ a type of strongly textured sand stone. Diagonally cut and mirrored stone plates create are a strongly articulated texture for floors and walls to reflect the folded ceiling planes of the pavilion. Recycled teak wood and iron wood floors were embedded into the stone floors at areas of resting and playing.
