Borrowing its form and use of materials from the Central-European peasant architecture, the building's modular structure channels contemporary design. The ground plan is created using 12 square metre units — this is the size defined by the inhabitants as an ideal room size. This unit is repeated in two rows next to each other, following a very clear logic: on one side there are the unit sized rooms, and on the other side there is a hallway running through the whole house, nipping off space from the units' width and creating smaller rooms for the bathrooms and storage units.
The pitched roof follows the peasant architecture's symmetrical 41 degree inclination, replicating the house's use of wood and metal: Above the heated apartment, the roof is covered in wooden shingles; the wide eaves and the roofed terrace are covered in metal sheets. Unified with the roof, the walls are also covered in shingles. The northeast façade is sheeted in metal; alongside the striped metal rolling shutters, these elements seek to add diversity to the house's overall image.
