      detriment of the environment as a whole and the investment value of the project, the
      H.O.A. have adopted an architectural concept to establish and maintain a character for the
      project. The implementation and maintenance of a unified architectural character is a
      condition of the township establishment and zoning of the site.

      timber windows, green colour roof, pergolas, covered terraces or verandas with timber
      posts and decorative balustrades painted white or with pastel accents. Doors and shutters
      are accented in colour.
