The volume stretches east to west parallel to the contour line and lies on a reinforced concrete basement, which makes the building foundations and underground floor. The masonry is made of reinforced concrete walls and a hardwood frame coated with typical local wooden tiles.

The saddle roof too is coated with the same tiling method, so that the roof and perimeter walls look like a whole surface. The south-facing protruding balcony overlooking the mountains emphasizes that the building entertains a direct relation with the landscape, and becomes an extension to it. Also, a large chimney anchored to the ground makes a relevant landmark in the landscape.

Distinctive features of the project are the full-height window openings, which protrude southwards with their aluminum – coated frames.
