The structure is oriented along an East, West Axis, with glazing to the North and solid walls to the south. The thermal mass of these walls, combined with an exposed concrete slab on the ground level, retain and radiate heat during winter. During hotter summer months, the copper screen and the offset overhang of the upper floor protects the ground floor from the high summer sun. Catenary wires for a deciduous vine have been incorporated into the trusses, this vine has the potential to offer further sun protection. The house is entirely double glazed with low E film and the garden and pool are fed by a submerged 25,000 Water tank. An angled garage door, eludes to be half open. When open, the door reveals uninterrupted views deep into the block, momentarily offering a tantalising view of the entire site and challenging the notion of the 'backyard' and private open space. The Compound is resilient, resembling a series of stacked elements opposed to the walls and rooflines of a traditional house.

A complex build, the Dulux Merrifield Coating Plant impresses in its design and delivery. The driving factor for the selection and detail of finishes was longevity in a harsh chemical based environment. The facility uses a compressed air system to pump the core materials required in the paint production process through stainless steel lines throughout the entire facility. To facilitate this a compressor room is located on the northern end of the facility. A VESDA system has been installed in the Production and Mezzaine areas of the building. Due to the propensity for detection systems to be exposed to high levels of dust, a reflected beam smoke detection system was chosen for the Powders Hall, which utilises mirrors and optical beams for detection. A gas compression system is installed in the power substation and standard smoke and thermal detection systems are used throughout the remainder of the facility.
