The roof is high, on two pitches, covered with newer sintered pepper tiles. The basement occupies a large part of the base of the building and serves as a storage room, only partly due to the presence of water. The yard facing Prote Mihaldžića Street is surrounded by a brick fence, next to which the substation facility is located. In the central part of the plot, along the right-hand furrow, in the places of the former ground-floor auxiliary buildings, two new residential buildings were built, illegally, consisting of a ground floor and a high attic, the design of which is inappropriate to the ambience of the sub-district.

The street facade of the main building is designed in four opening axes. On the first floor, there is a row of windows in a simple plaster frame with an accented solbank, and above them, a rectangular ornament with two-part grooved sides is recessed into the plaster. There are shallow pilasters at the corners of the floor facade. On the ground floor, there is a dominant semi-circular opening of the two-wing car entrance, on which the verticals are accentuated by imitating stone blocks. The semicircle of the opening is profiled with a finish made plastic in plaster. Heavy double-winged wooden doors with a ray-cut ornament in the upper part and rosettes in the center of the upper field of the wing bear the characteristics of classicism.
