The new house has the ground floor entirely wrapped in Guernsey granite and reclaimed brick, which was predominantly sourced on site.

Natural lime render highlights the porch and a carport carved out from the overall mass of the building, while a steel frame cantilevers above the eastern side and is covered in a living wall with a mix of 13 native species.
