The interior of the house has a staircase with an indoor garden that connects the different floors in the house; the staircase is the core of the house. Above it, a skylight of 2,00×3,00m illuminates the room daily.
The house has three floors above and one below ground level. The volume of the staircase is lined with black slate stone that rises above the rest. The whole house is built with white limestone with a sharp horizontal cut, which allows the contrast to be seen between the honed stone and the natural texture of slate. The property has a lounge with large glazed windows that also boast solar control glass.
On the second floor a setback occurs, leading onto an indoor balcony that allows easy access into all the rooms on this floor.
It also has two English style courtyards with separate access which allows light to the floor below ground.
