The facades are decorated with black slate and bleached larch from Arkhangelsk with protective coating. The staircase in natural oak is located in a glass box of the center of the building. It leads to an elongated rectangular hall covered with a glass vault created the light-flooded passage on the second floor. There is a convenient layout with luxury bathrooms and wardrobes on the second floor. In the spacious living room of the first floor the architect has established a large handmade fireplace as a stone portal with carved columns, decorated in authentic Italian Renaissance style of ХVI century.
