The Stramit® steel roof is a major design feature of the house. Although little of the roof is visible from the ground, the house is nevertheless a dramatic example of the flexibility of metal roofing, since the roof lines could not be realised in any other material.

The striking design and quality finishes of the house were recognised by the Master Builders Association of Queensland, who named it House of the Year at the MBA 2007 Brisbane Housing & Construction Awards.
