One would be that the building fits the theme with the environment. This would ensure that the building does not look out of place. Another consideration would be the materials to be used for building the various parts of the building. This would help in giving the building its overall look and feel.
Another consideration would be the relevance and the importance of the various parts of the building in the overall theme of the building.
