R. Hye’s style of architecture. The design of the building incorporates natural climate control features, such as cross-ventilation, strategic placement of windows, and overhangs and courtyards to create shade.

Additionally, the roof vaults, besides providing insulation, also allow the flow of air through the vaulted roof, bringing down ceiling temperatures. Hollow walls also provide insulation. This provides natural protection against the hot and dry climate of Bahawalpur.
