"Sometimes, contemporary tropical design is either too clinical, too rustic, or simply unoriginal. We are trying to find ways of interfering within the natural landscape responsibly, and reducing energy consumption through natural ventilation," explains Saxe.

Eventually, a sample of titanium was tacked up for six months and showed no wear. “Part of the green philosophy is not just what is cheaper; it’s what’s sustainable,” Cranston explains. “The titanium cladding was more expensive, but this is a house we plan to be in for the rest of our lives, so we wanted something that needed virtually no maintenance.”
