This small, single-family house has several floors: the lower floor is occupied chiefly by accessory areas (cellar, ventilation space, and operational systems) and a double height living room which can also be reached from the upper floor at street level: it includes the entrance, preceded by a big quadrangular patio, the hexagonal-plan hall, the kitchen, the four bedrooms, and the dining room (connected to the living room on the lower floor by a suspended bridge and one of the two main staircases). Instead the third and last floor is smaller and designed as a small projecting tower rising from the roof. The independent suite on this floor is used by the owners; it has a wardrobe-dressing room and private bathroom. A secondary staircase in one corner of the ground floor hall leads to this floor.

There is a series of full height windows screened by shutters on the façades of the main floor and living room.
