In order to overcome the overseas design challenge and the strict preservation laws a local regulatory guidance was commissioned. Each of the original stones which constructed the old stable facades was numbered, disassembled and reconstructed after being validated for it structural strength. An external spiral staircase was the only structural element that was permitted by the local authority to be demolished. The architects faced a great challenge which was on the one hand preserving the old country side style of building and on the other hand designing an uncompromisable architecture and interior design.

The overall interiors of the villa were designed in a toucan style affiliated with rough terra-cotta stone flooring installed in a fishbone angular arrangements, wooden beams, local plaster techniques, white, brown & pinkish color plates and ceiling ceramic tiles. On top of each of the windows one can observe the horizontal wooden beam which was originally placed as a structural solution for the top of the windows. All the original details such as the window & doors handles were refurbished and placed back in their original place. Even the original iron rings which were designated for tethering the horses where refurbished and kept in place.
