Look strange outside - cardboard.

Some of the exterior shots look to me like it's trying to hard to be Neutra's Kaufman house.

I doubt whether this is the best approach for a site with this much view towards most of the sides. This looks like a building in a different setting planted here. Rather than following some vernacular guidelines, One should explore the potential of the site and exploit its qualities to the maximum for a good architecture.
Sometime before, i think i have seen another project featured here in 'archdaily' in an almost similar surrounding. I remember the project name to be 'Lot 23' in Columbia.
Try Comparing, I think you'll understand the difference i mean
