The Casa Bonomo project involved the construction of a small one-family villa; its single main floor, above ground, exploited the natural slope of the terrain while its base was build partially below ground and used as a cellar. An outdoor staircase connected the two floors, however one variant of the design also envisaged an indoor staircase.

A portico runs along two sides of the house; it faces the garden and - in the first design - leads to a small entrance with a wall cupboard. The latter leads directly to the day area with the independent kitchen and the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The two bedrooms for the children are situated along a short corridor next to a big playroom and the servants' bedroom. In the final version of the plan the entrance is replaced by a short flight of steps leading to the children's bedrooms; the steps separate the two levels of the main floor.

The steep pitch of the black brick roof characterises the very simple external volumes.
