The residence was designed with reinforced concrete with a steel frame. By using the elevations of the site, the platform was raised above the road level to include a lawn garden and the main living spaces.

The combined two structures that surround the garden make an L-shape that includes a formal living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and a family living room. Though these spaces are connected, there are small level differences that lead from public to private and provide variations of familiarity.

The flowed volume on the first floor contains private rooms for the family. The house allows one to feel nature outside and also overlook the city and the sea.
