From a volumetric point of view, the house is a traditional house from Muntenia with a basic compositional core and an accent. A careful attention was paid to the details of the wooden elements, proportions, construction methods and materials. The main access is made through a central stair that reaches the porch and then the house.

The plan of the house is traditional and consists of three rooms accessed from one to another, easily adaptable to the new function of a memorial house, it ca host exhibitions, events, cultural gatherings etc. The lower floor holds the cellar that was used to store food and barrels of wine and brandy – currently the basement will host a kitchenette, restrooms and a sitting area for guests.
