The 19 Square metre dwelling was describe as "being a peaceful small home, a kind of urban cave". It is constructed using a timber frame and is clad in aluminium. Internally, a different species of wood was chosen for each room.

The timber-clad steel cage is suspended from steel cables that run over the roof of the existing building and are anchored in the rear facade. Within the cube, one has the impression of “floating” outside the confines of the actual dwelling in a space filled with light. Elements can be folded down from the wall toform furnishings.
