The architects preserved the two street-facing facades and a vaulted cellar. Parts of the building had to be demolished and built anew, mimicking their original form. Three apartments were created between the north facade that features a filigree truss and muntin window, and the south facade that offers beautiful views of the mountainous landscape.

The new facade contrasts the street front and features grey spruce cladding with bay windows. Inside, several elements inspired by vernacular architecture are combined with modern design. Small, wooden chambers are surrounded with large, white spaces of varying ceiling heights.
