The building has a rectangular layout and two floors above ground, the first floor is of smaller dimensions, with a vast terrace that extends for the most of the perimeter, starting from the main façade, continuing on the east side of the building and ending at the back. Currently lacking any finishes or wiring etc., it consists of an independent framework with the beams and pillars in reinforced cement and is surrounded by a vast external area, partially covered by trees and fenced in, with pedestrian gates and driveways. The current urban redevelopment plan allows the building to be used as tourist accommodation.
