Each residential unit is made up of single-family apartments of two floors, with garden and orchard in each, consisting of five spans: in the ground floor are the living room, dining room and kitchen. The quality of the living space is highlighted by elements such as the fireplace and the window concave spread from floor to ceiling, which is also hidden as defined by an oblique wall.
Upstairs Gardella defines only the master bedroom that opens onto a loggia screen and services that consist of the bathroom and walk-in closets. The other rooms are determined by moveable partition. Of particular interest is the major façade, punctuated by large vertical windows on the ground floor by the broken arches of the loggias openings that mark the entrances to the individual adjustment apartments.
