The facade, consisting of horizontal wooden slats and large glazed surfaces, appears rather closed towards the street, but opens up with large apertures towards the garden side, overlooking the large old oak trees located in the southeast corner. To the east, a narrow part of the house is designed as a loggia and covered terrace.

Despite the generous glazed openings, interior spaces are created with a sense of privacy and at the same time a relationship to the outside. The arrangement of the rooms is based on a triple division through the roof ridge. In the kitchen, dining room, living room and office, this structure is broken and forms a coherent spatial continuous. The two-story high room also integrates the upper floor and gives the impression of a loft.

The outbuilding with garage is designed in the same style as the main building. It creates the impression of a small ensemble. The outbuilding with garage, located at some distance, clearly accentuates the residential building. At the same time, the garden area is framed by the selective placement of the outbuilding and allows privacy from the street.
