The street level cladding and window frames are in traditional sandstone (Kurkar),  and the buildings mid-levels are stuccoes in a light mustard and tomato pink tone.  Crafted wooden fenestrations and doors on the ground and first level along with traditional Jaffa railings and oval openings create a fusion of old and new.
