The house is clad in painted fiber-concrete board, arranged in two different patterns, both using "rain wall" construction strategies. Essentially, an airspace is provided behind the panels so that water doesn't get trapped behind them.

On the body of the house, this gap is exposed at the colored panels, which provides relieve from the pattern, while at the tower, the depth of the skin is exploited in the sill and window detailing, creating a set back "lantern" effect.
