Upper floors have continuous strips of large pane sliding windows, those at 1st floor with round tie-plates above and 2nd floor slightly recessed. Right hand return has glazed, recessed ground floor, the upper floors supported on pilotis and having a continuous raked flower trough; a small rectangular window to each floor.

Connell and Ward were early admirers of Le Corbusier; Lucas, similarly influenced and frustrated by conventional builders, had set up his own company to develop ideas for reinforced concrete. The three worked as a team from 1933, for six years producing a series of houses that no contemporary firm could match.
