The house was stylistically conceived as a hybrid of early modernism, influenced by architects such as Rudolph Schindler, and contemporary Japanese, Mediterranean and Californian architecture. These styles respond to the climate of Southern California and the eclectic nature of Venice Beach.

The materials are used in this house is minimal. The consideration is to maintain a consistent visual flow and experiential peacefulness. The ground floor uses the finished concrete because of its durability and its ability to be used both inside and out. The mahogany wood is applied for the wood windows, doors, cabinets, siding and second level floors. It is chosen because of its durability and to create a warm textural counterpoint to the concrete and drywall. Light blue and green glass tile was used inside and out to bring the colour of water to all water locations such as the kitchen sink splash, bathrooms and pool.
