The rectangle plan of the building is divided into three parts – in the centre there is a huge hall with lounge and kitchen area with ceiling as high as 7 m. A huge fireplace is installed in the centre of the lounge are. One end of the building houses a two-level Master apartment, the other end – four two-level apartments for children or guests, each with a separate bathroom. The layout of the house is simple and symmetrical, as dictated by the clear architecture and the simplicity of the horizontal lines of the landscape – just the sea, the sky and the shore. The interior design concept was determined by the industrial origin of the building. It is an exercise in contrasts: rough, cool industrial surfaces and perfectly finished, warm wood. The stark element is represented by the crudely finished brick walls, the concrete panels, the metal beams, platforms, stairs and railings, the aluminium windows. The contrast is achieved with consistent and abundant use of wood – a style borrowed from the architecture of yachts and ships. Inside the house, all wooden details are made of exotic Brazilian jatoba cherry wood. The few furniture pieces in the house are carefully selected design icons that have stood the test of time.
