The building is designed as a modern, bright house resembling traditional architecture. Its basic motif are two rectangular volumes with a flat roof. Short lateral facades are predominantly closed, while the long ones are open, with embedded cubes. These are like single family homes, a kind of a paraphrase of the former homes of the residents. The home is divided into a partially open public part with a mixed program on the ground floor, a service part with an additional public program in the basement, and sleeping and living quarters on upper four floors.
