The load-bearing structure of the building is steel framed, while prefabricated metal panels are used for the building envelope. The construction is completed with metal building components, such as windows, railings, pergolas and chimneys. Access to all areas of the house is through a shared vertical communication core that includes a staircase and elevator, being the connecting element of all levels of the building. The house is developed on three levels, while also having a basement. The roof is intended to function as an additional level for outdoor recreational activities, while it is also used for the installation of photovoltaics. The ground floor is half formed as an independent apartment, while the other half is used as a covered parking space, as well as for the entrance to the building. The two upper floors are organised in two horizontal zones, a southern one which includes the living or served areas and a northern one which includes the vertical communication core and the auxiliary or servant areas. The two functional zones communicate with each other through a corridor that runs through the entire floor plan. Common areas such as the living room, dining room and kitchen are located on the first floor, while the second floor has more private areas, such as the bedrooms. Large openings and balconies give a characteristic modern aesthetic to the form of the house.
