The residence has a smooth and gradual massing towards the south-west, bringing in the feature of the extensive sloping roofs. The house reflects the planned flow of spaces to intentionally connect the many otherwise separate areas.
The special characteristic of the house is the use of natural materials and traditional elements. The Chettinad stone columns and brackets is one such feature. The extensive use of timber for column brackets, the rafters, eaveboards and roof-light details, brings a richness to the house.
